This event took place on 17 July 2010 as part of the Brockley Food  Fair at Friendly Gardens. During the day-long event we worked with children and young people, with over 100 participants over the course of the day.

Inspired by the work of that well known 'foodie' renaissance painter Arcimboldo, we created a huge gallery of portraits and self-portraits using paper plates, collaged dried foods and vegetable prints.
