You Learn Something New…..

These holes at the Taxila UNESCO World Heritage site in Pakistan had been puzzling me for some time. I found out this evening what they are ….. probably. Hannah Lawson and I opened our pop-up studio at Swansea Print Workshop this evening with a Welsh / Pakistani tea and we did an illustrated talk about our residency in Rawalpindi last year. One of the people who came recognised them as an ancient type of fridge. Pits like these were lined with clay or stone and kept food cool. You learn something new every day.

Hannah and I will be working at Swansea Print Workshop from 10.30 – 5 tomorrow (Saturday), Sunday and Monday and we’ll be happy to show visitors around the lovely antique machinery as well as our exhibition and what we’re working on.

    It’s very interesting. Very good solution for having a fridge without electricity.

    What an extraordinary experience, I loved reading about it, and great to bring it home and share in the workshop
