Object Stories: Creative Writing and Visual Art Workshop

Tuesday 24 May – 10.00-16.00

This workshop, led by Archaeologist and artist Rose Ferraby, will take inspiration from the objects in The world of Stonehenge exhibition; moving between creative writing and visual art, participants explore the objects from different angles, buildings fragments into a story.

One of the wonders of archaeology is thinking about the people connected to the objects we find: who made them? What stories were they part of? The world of Stonehenge exhibition is full of inspiring objects, and we will be using these as a starting point to imagine past worlds. Some were found in graves, whilst others were lost and found by chance or hoarded safe in a pit. Moving between creative writing and visual art, we will explore the objects from different angles, buildings fragments into a story.

No experience necessary. All materials provided.

Please email me for a space.
