A creative writing workshop with Amelia Walker.
Are you fascinated by your dreams and impressions they leave you with? Why not explore this landscape using poetry or prose to unlock their imagery, symbolism and narratives.
It’s simple. Just bring along a dream to explore and write about. Or if you prefer, you may explore dream-like symbols in our gallery’s current exhibitions.
Amelia, whose most recent poetry collection Dreamday responds to artworks about dreams and dreaming, will provide a supportive creative environment for you to delve into this inner world.
Session includes a short break. There will be optional group readings and refreshments towards the end of the session.
Suitable for people 18 and over. All materials provided.
This workshop is a cross art-form extension of Gallery 1855’s exhibition A Doll That Phyllis Never Gave Me. A response to a disturbing dream about a doll. Created by visual artist Catherine McAvoy. Concludes 27 April.
