'Finding Poetry in the Wear and Tear' - Workshop one

  • Rag & Bone shop Heol Maengwyn Machynlleth, SY20 United Kingdom (map)

Inspired by the second-hand bygones and bric-a-brac to be found in The Rag & Bone Shop, Maengwyn St. and Pen'rallt Gallery Bookshop's current exhibition, 'Wear & Tear in a small engineering works, now gone', photographs by Geoff Young, Carol Leach takes up the challenge to help anyone, no previous experience necessary, make poetry.
The Rag & Bone Shop from 3 - 4pm.
(Pen'rallt Gallery Bookshop from 4.30 - 5.30pm)

Join Carol for either, or both, with a break for tea and cake at the bookshop from 4 - 4.30pm. Carol Leach writes poetry. She takes her inspiration for this workshop from a course run at the Tate Modern in 2009 with Pascale Petite and at Ty Newydd with each of the two laureates.
