Come to a FREE workshop inspired by the objects in our store
Join artist Alison Solomon for a free workshop inspired by the incredible collection of objects in the National Justice Museum stores.
FREE, all materials provided
Wednesday 3 April, 1pm-3.30pm
Micro Poetry workshop
Inspired by historic postcards sent to and from people in prison, Alison will lead a creative word based poetry session.
During the workshop you’ll have a chance to see the Oubliette, a cave like hole in the museum, where prisoners were left and forgotten. Learn how prisoners dealt with their solitude and confinement through words and poetry and produce a sequence of poetic cards to take home or send to someone who has been forgotten.
1 May, 5 June, 3 July, 7 August, 4 September, 2 October, 6 November& 4 December 2019 – more details on these workshops will be announced soon!
The workshops will take place in a friendly space, led by supportive creative practitioners, each using an object as a source of inspiration to make jewellery, poems, sculpture or collage. Come and be part of something special from the start as we explore the museum collection together.
