Tough Dough is a registered Community Interest Company. We are a group of two visual artists: Lizzie Black and Alessandra Ausenda. We were founded in 2005 at the Acorn Theatre in Penzance. Our first project called Tough Dough was an art installation made by artists, the community and schools in the Penzance area. The art installation was made of bread dough and flour and based on the theme of domestic life. Since then we have delivered exciting art projects in Cornwall making films and animations, developing creative food projects, launching art events in towns, organising exhibitions and comminity events. Through creative thinking, we work with community groups, schools, colleges and individuals throughout Cornwall. We often work in partnership with other organisations, schools and businesses to maximise participation in each of our projects.
