Now in it’s seventh year Spice has developed into a fantastic family and community event. It has stayed true to it’s original ethos of giving much needed affordable opportunities to up and coming designers, makers, artists and small local businesses. We are excited to have relocated to Coronation Park at Millbrook and hope this will bring new visitors to Spice. The beautiful grounds of the park lend itself some interesting new additions to the festival.
Bianca Padidar and Sarah Jordan who set Spice up as a charity continue to feel passionately about promoting the wealth of local creative talent that Jersey has to offer. Both experienced teachers within visual arts they feel driven to try to integrate their day-to- day experiences within a wider context.
Alongside established practitioners, Spice has also developed a number of educational projects where students and the public produce experimental work exploring their creativity through collaborating with others. This year we are delighted to have Lucy Hodges a renowned milliner and artist, Lucy will be running interactive recycled projects with kids.
There will be a fashion exhibition showcasing student’s work from Highlands College and Jersey College for Girls that focuses on the theme of up-cycling. This year Spice takes place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September and is packed full of entertainment for both adults and children. There will be a good range of musicians playing throughout the weekend.
Sitas Circus, Chordz, Stop Motion, Total Mayhem and Relax Kids will be offering interactive workshops and entertainment for children.
There will be poetry and storytelling from Jersey Festival of Words
there will also be a selection of Therapists offering advice and taster sessions within their chosen field.
Alongside enjoying the locally made arts and crafts, visitors will also be able to purchase Genuine Jersey produce or enjoy the wide variety of food and drink; while the whole family is entertained.
Entrance to Spice is free, however donations are welcome in order to continue supporting this lovely event.
