I haven’t posted anything for a while so let’s start with the oldest one (again). According to the last post about the information of Breast Stupa Ice cream workshop on 11 July 2007. So here is showing how it goes…
The workshop is devided into two parts, morning and afternoon. The morning workshop is for the children from the organization and the later one is open to any kids.
In each part, it’s devided into 3 sessions. First is the art of scoop, by using the tools to scratch-scoop-dig, then other colors of the ice cream which lay beneath the first layer will appear. It creates an unexpectable art piece.
The second session is to decorate the ready colorful beast shape ice cream by using their imagination and the materials we have prepared such as coloyful natural syrups and jams, topping, colorful chocolate chips, fruits and flowers, snack and so on.
I made lots of colorful simple flavours by using P’Ai breast cookies cutter to make the shape of the ice cream. They are ready to be decorated by the kids.
After playing with P’Ai’s breast stupa mold, the third session will let the kids make their own simple mold made of aluminium foil. As our traditional Thai ice cream is hardly found nowadays, this third session will introduce this Thai ice (without cream) and its tool “Tee Sai Nam Kang” to the children to learn our history. The prepared ice flake will be filled in the mold and ready to be decorated.
P’Ai’s breast stupa stainless mold and prepared aluminium foil to make the simple mold.
The staffs were working hard (Sai Nam Kang) to make the ice flake for the kids.
At the end of each session is eating time to enjoy their own art pieces…hmmm yummy!
Eventually I just admitted with the severe stomache again on the day before the workshop start, got out of the hospital at 4.00 in the morning and then went straight to Jim Thompson to prepare this workshop. So I couldn’t eat anything that much. However all those smiles from the kids made me feel happy and forgot about those pain that happened to me on the previous day.
So do P’Ai who is so generous and so kind to me, all Jim Thompson staffs (P’Poo, Khun Tann, N’Now and P’….), all the staff who worked hard for the kids to play and of course P’Jiab and Jim Thompson art center who create this wonderful event.
Thank you so much.
