Join award-winning poet and artist Chris James for this creative workshop for 10-16 year olds at Haverhill Library, as part of the Blank Page project! Learn how to make a 2024 calendar made up of beautiful Suffolk landscapes.
Workshop includes a free lunch, drinks, snacks and festive hot chocolate, plus other goodies!
About the workshop:
Award-winning poet and artist Chris James will lead a workshop to create a 2024 calendar made up of beautiful Suffolk landscapes through all four seasons. Using coloured paper, scissors and glue, we'll create landscapes filled with trees, birds and snow to inspire us for the year ahead. We'll also choose a season to write a poem about, and Chris will give us hints and tips for creating something evocative and memorable. We'll have break-out sessions with music, yoga and a brain gym to get us all in the right frame of mind.
