Thanks to Derick and Jane for a Soup feast, with very nice homemade bread and loads of ham and cheese. Very Nice.
Derick also demonstrated a magic infrared paintbrush which allows patterns that you paint in the air to be recorded onto a PC or laptop.

Next soup 25th April, please remember that you can enter for the soup grant that will be awarded on the 30 May by Francesca Wilmot exhibition director at the Hyde Part Art Centre, Chicago.

Thanks for everyone who came to Jude’s Valentine Soup the winter veg soup was special, and the chocolate cake went down a treat. Unfortunately I missed the start because I forgot the float for the till. The bric-a-brac store was again popular and a total of £50 was raised towards the second soup grant that will be awarded at the end of April soup.

The next soup will be 21 March and hosted by Soup award winner Derrick Welsh. He’ll make soup and chat about how he used his grant to fund an electronic drawing project.

The following Soup will coincide with a Waygood update on 25 April and the soupers will be James-Johnson Perkins and Helen Smith. Then at the end of May, Francesca Wilson, Arts Administration post graduate student at the School of the Arts Institute Chicago will make soup in what we hope will be the first Saturday and Sunday Soup link up, exciting times.

Saturday Souper falls on valentine’s day, and Jude Thomas will be serving up a heart warming winter vegtable soup.
There will be an addition to to the menu in the form of chocolate cake, and the bric-a-brac store will be back
