It’s got a great look, but can you eat off it?
At Om Nohm Gluten Free, everything is a little different than the average version of itself. So much more than just a surface, the table is the center of the shared meal, the gathering space; it can comfort, inspire, intrigue. Memories are made there.
That’s why, at Om Nohm Gluten Free, we are starting a Table Revolution: a rotating collection of table tops to start conversations and keep the room dynamic!
Each set will have a theme, a few thoughts to get your ideas flowing, and a few rules to keep the tables usable for the bakery space!
Don’t want to make a table, but love the idea? Get involved anyway–contact us to sponsor a table!
Transformation Tables: A Recycled Repast
In honor of Om Nohm Gluten Free’s transformation from a nomadic bakery to a Fredonia staple, we want to see what you can transform into a table top. Up-cycling and repurposed materials are encouraged. Try to buy as few new things as possible.
Allow the spirit of Wabi Sabi and re-imagination to fuel your creative intuition and process. This is a great chance to publish your inspired folk crafting or creative artwork in the community!
All proposals should be sent to Jess@omnohm.com (sketches and/or written descriptions are accepted.) If you do not use email, you can bring us your proposal at Fredonia Farm Festival 8/24-26 or Fredonia Farmer’s Market on 9/8/2018. We will let you know when we have received it, and if we have any questions. We will choose the top 8 proposals for table top pick-up, and we will attach the table tops to our own bases once received.
A Few Guidelines:
- Washable non-porous final surface
- Comfortable eating surface area
- Creative use of found supplies encouraged–we love up-cycled and repurposed materials
- We will provide a total of 8 2’x 2’, 2’x 3’, and 2’ round boards as canvases for the table tops, type choice available to proposal winners on a first come, first-serve basis, so let us know your preference, if you have one, in your proposal.
