Time 13:00 - 15:00

Duration 2 hours

Cost In order to keep our events programme affordable to everyone, please make a donation.  Suggested donation £5

Come along and work with poet Ian McMillan to make poems based around the images in our Grafters exhibition.  We’ll spend time looking at the photographs and then we’ll choose some as a starting point for new writing.  We’ll gaze, we’ll talk, we’ll think and we’ll make poems.

Anyone can come along, but Ian is specially looking for people who haven’t written a poem before.  Come and have a go if you think you’re bard enough!
