Friends of Garnethill Green Spaces (FROGGS) will be firing up the community Bread Oven on 22nd June, at Interfest celebrations for Refugee Week. Real life diversity will be celebrated with wood fired bread recipes from different cultures. Inspired by the ancient architecture and custom of community bread ovens, GSA student, Eleonora Jaroszynska's design was adopted by FROGGS.

The build was realised as a unique collaboration between members of the community, art and architecture students and staff from GSA and Strathclyde University. The structure incorporates materials salvaged from the 2014 fire at the GSA Mackintosh building. The symbology of bread rising from the ashes of destruction was not lost, though poignantly highlighted by the devastation of the 2018 fire.

The resilient community launched their new architectural structure in the first week of January 2019, with a firing and sharing of pizzas, bread and a good blether. In real life, real food cooked in the fire of community spirit, warms the soul.
