Join The Poetry Class’s Joanna Preston on a poetic voyage through Perilous: Unheard Stories from the Collection, in two workshops where poetry meets the visual arts.

Ekphrastic poetry – poems written in response to art – has an ancient history. In this three hour workshop, Joanna Preston will take participants through a discussion of some of that history, before putting the theory into practice in a series of guided writing exercises in response to four artworks from Perilous. Whether you are a novice writer or a published poet, an art aficionado or a painting neophyte, there's sure to be something here for you!

Bookings essential. Each session booked separately.
