We will use the houses, setting and implements on display as source material to develop notebook entries and then more sustained first drafts of poems. The emphasis will be on how observational writing develops a metaphoric power.  We will experiment with the emotional resonance of language concerned with making, building and gardening, as we explore notions of home and work in relation to the rich sources of this setting and our own lives. Creative methods will include: discussion of poems, observational writing tasks, poetry experiments and some gentle celebratory sharing of work at the end of the day.

Given the rich stimuli available at the museum, this course could suit someone starting to write, or more experienced writers who are looking for new subject material or methods.

The one day course and the evening reading by our guest poets and tutor are open to writers of any level of experience
