Hackney WickEd Art Festival

From this evening and all weekend, here in Hackney Wick we are celebrating with the huge Hackney WickED Art Festival!

There will be over 100 open galleries to explore and 15 exhibitions that have been put on especially for the festival.

There’s loads more taking place too. Live music, Fetes, markets, pop-up events, food and drink, performances, tours and workshops……

I will be showing some new work as part of Fish Island Labs at Swan Wharf. (see Hackney WicKed programme and map)

Come on over and say hello.

It will be loads of fun!

Spelt Scones, in fact, Spelt and Wild Garlic Scones

Easy peasy.

Spelt and Wild Garlic Scones

First pick a handful of wild garlic leaves……worth the effort…..OR today I spotted growing pots of it at Panzers …. not so wild…..

These are all spelt flour scones. I used white spelt flour, you could use wholemeal spelt flour too, but they will be heavier.

I used up some of the syrup from a jar of stem ginger I had, (gives the scones a gentle gingery flavour) but use honey if that’s what you’ve got.
