Our Words Workshops



You are invited to bring an object from home which is significant to you in some way. Examples include: a piece of jewellery, an old letter, text, poem or textile.  During this workshop you will gain the skills to plan and produce a collaborative picture and poem in relation to this object. 

This workshop aims to provide you with the skills to develop an understanding of self-representation and story telling through the mediums of photography and poetry. 

Workshops will go for a duration of two hours and take place in English (but you are welcome to write in whatever language you’d like your story to exist in).
