This recipe was the result of a Welsh Arts Council initiative (Lead Creative Schools) to get artists working in schools and was put together by Ami Marsden and Lindy Martin with pupils, staff and family members from Maes y Morfa and Maes y Llyn schools in Llanelli. All fired in Carmarthen School of Art.
