Suga Lifestyle & Rotaract New Kingston’s Art-tivity Project with the Deaf Kicks off to a great start!

Part 1 of ART-TIVITY got off to a great start on Saturday! Suga Lifestyle (GW Art) in collaboration with the Rotaract Club of New Kingston is conducting an Art initiative with students from the Lister Mair/Gilby High School for the Deaf. They will be Painting, Tie-Dying, Jewellery making and learning customer service, marketing and entrepreneurship skills.

The children were quite excited and motivated, absorbing everything that was signed to them as they produced items from how they were guided. This project not only allows us to learn and communicate via sign language, but also aims to create awareness of the deaf community thereby reducing
stigmatization within the society at large. We want to create
new friendships through socialization and art and wish to inspire students to be more comfortable pursuing their dreams and goals without boundaries.

Chorlavi’s Pepper Jellies and Jams will be at GW Art’s Exhibition!

20190919_040616_0000.png

Come View, Sip, Taste and Shop GW Art’s Collection at The Jamaica Pegasus on Saturday, September 28th!

The event will feature Cheeses from Outland Hurders Creamery & Farmstead, Chorlavi’s Pepper Jellies and Jams and rich, bean to dark Chocolate from One One Cacao to complement the evening too!

Chorlavi’s by Nella Davis Stewart out of St. Ann, uses less sugar and more local organic fruit, herbs and vegetables to create a tasty variety of Pepper Jellies and Jams. No preservatives and no additives.

Nella used to be a caterer, so can demonstrate how well her Jams and Jellies pair with meats.

Where did she get the name Chorlavi’s?

Nella went to eat at Haciendo Chorlavi, a hotel in the hills of Ecuador about 20 years ago. They have a love story similar to Lover’s Leap in Jamaica and she fell in love with the place.

When Nella went to register her business’s name as Gems, in honour of her mother, the name was aready taken. So she went with Chorlavi’s!

What’s Suga’s fave from Chorlavi’s?

I love the Pineapple, Mango and Carambola Pepper Jellies. They were balanced in terms of tasting the fruit, the spicy and the sweet.

I love the Otaheite Jam too.

What will Chorlavi’s have at GW Art’s Collection?

Chorlavi’s has such a range of Jams and Jellies, I can just give you a preview!
