Souls of Forgotten Objects – Writing Exploration
A Live, In-Person Workshop with Brian Evans-Jones
Saturday | 9:00 am-3:00 pm
Few things stimulate thought and ideas as powerfully as great art viewed in person. This workshop will take you on an intensive writer’s journey around the “Souls of Forgotten Objects” exhibition, using the artworks to inspire your own writing. You’ll discover new ways of looking at found objects and the art that has been made of them, then use this to launch into your own poetry, nonfiction, or fiction. You’ll also have the opportunity to incorporate your own found objects and found words into your writing, drawing on the techniques you see in the exhibition to develop your creative skills and techniques.
Suitable for all levels of experience.
