Claire Makes Things and Slowpastry joined their passions to create “Bake the season” a planner for the year 2021. 2020 was very intense in emotions and events, and there is nothing better than ending it by starting to plan a 2021 full of sweet moments with a lot of joy and energy!
Like many of our projects, “Bake the season” grew out of a personal connection, in this case with Claire, a young illustrator who we met two years ago at the Foodlab.
At Slowpastry we have the desire to work with people who inspire us, with people with whom we share values, and with local businesses in our community. And so we trusted Claire without hesitation to create what we had in mind! Her magic pencils produced around 20 delicate and colourful illustrations that will accompany you throughout the coming year. A step by step to help everyone to focus on what is important: taking care of themselves and their loved ones, defining goals, organising their free time, leaving moments to put their hands in the dough and to share the experience of pastry.
But not just any pastry – a Slowpastry made with love, with good ingredients and seasonal fruit. And to help you on this path, our planner includes a seasonal fruit calendar guided by illustrations and a quarterly recipe that can be savoured in good company.
The cherry on the cake is that we found a neighbourhood stationery store to create the prints and a carpenter from the outskirts of Madrid to make the base. The result: a planner with soul!
“Bake the season” is a great sustainable gift idea for those special people in your life; let’s all bake a very sweet 2021 together!
