Join us in exploring the relationship between poetry and paint. A relaxing, reflective session taking time out to look closely at nature wherever we live and to consider our impact on the natural world and the creatures we share it with.
Alison is a contemporary British painter with a broad, investigative approach. She combines drawing outside with intuitive methods of working in the studio exploring ideas and concepts.
Susan is the Community Outreach Officer for The Wordsworth Trust which brings art and literature alive for tens of thousands of people every year. As well as Dove Cottage and the other historic buildings at Wordsworth Grasmere, The Wordsworth Trust looks after a unique collection of works by Wordsworth and the other writers and artists of the Romantic period.
Please find a piece of hedgerow, verge or wasteland etc in advance of the session and look at it for 10 or more minutes. Draw, write, and take photos. Collect bits from your section of hedgerow or waste ground (berries, brambles, twigs, leaves etc).
