Drop-in Poetry workshop with Helen Ivory
Saturday 4th May 11am to 4pm - first floor of the Millennium Library
Make your own collage poem. Spend a short time or all day making poems from words and images cut from ephemera such as newspapers and magazines. Emphasis here is on play and chance connections when you are not thinking too hard. This is intended as a fun workshop, but the intention is to explore the relationship between the unconscious and creativity. Materials such as magazines, paper, glue and scissors will be provided. All age groups welcome
