Join us for this new series of Creative Writing workshops in the beautiful surroundings of God's House Tower hosted by Susmita Bhattacharya

About this event

Gardez-L’Eau

For this workshop we will focus on fabric and the stories they hold. Taking GHT’s exhibition Gardez-L’eau by Enam Gbewenyo as inspiration we will look at the textures and the history of fabrics.

Together we’ll discuss what histories fabrics hold as well as what personal connections you might hold with certain clothes and garments. You’re invited to bring these items with you to let us share their stories.

These workshops are free and open to all levels from those who have never tried creative writing to self published authors and everything in between. This is the second in a series of creative writing workshops which will explore and respond to our visual art programme at God's House Tower.
