Bread poetry hits the South West
Hobbs House Bakery have collaborated with Bristol-based artist Luke Jerram and ten poets from around the UK to bring a little joy and surprise to the breakfast table with... bread poetry!
Each Saturday, a different poem is printed onto small sheets of edible rice paper and baked onto the underside of each white loaf, celebrating the ‘Poet of the Week’ and allowing the public to read, share, contemplate and digest this unique artwork.
The bread poetry project began with an open call where nearly 300 submissions from both amateur and professional poets from across the UK were received, then Bristol’s Poet Laureate Vanessa Kinsule helped to select the final ten poems.
The loaves are available at Hobbs House Bakery’s five shops across Bristol and The Cotswolds, as well as numerous delis and farmshops across the South West.
