Poetry Workshop at Watt’s Gallery, Compton

The Watts Gallery, Compton


I am leading a poetry workshop at the Watt’s Gallery in Compton Surrey. It is a unique setting in the Surrey Hills and if you have never visited you have an amazing treat in store.

G F Watts was a highly popular and successful artist and commissioned a beautiful Arts and Crafts gallery to house the items of his collection which are not in museums and galleries around the world. he left the entirety to the nation. It is a great experience to view his work exactly as he planned.

My workshop is focussing on his sculpture, Physical Energy and the idea of words in the landscape around the gallery. The amazing results of a similar workshop for young people held last week can already be seen fluttering in the surrounding woodland. If you would like your poems to join them, come along to the workshop on 18th August from 11am to 4 pm. Bookings can be made by following the link : http://www.wattsgallery.org.uk/events/learning-events/2012/07/20/watts-adult-art-class

All levels of writers are welcome…you need to bring along nothing more than your imagination. This is a unique opportunity to explore this magnificent gallery…there is also a famous tea room to enjoy!
