Event description

Description

Do you have special memories of Abergavenny Castle? Sharing memories is an enriching and valuable experience – for young and older alike. Join Lynn Clausen for this writing workshop as part of an intergenerational pair (a child and an adult). There will be a short tour of the castle and grounds followed by a creative writing workshop recording your memories.

To link with the current exhibition which tracks the past 200 years of Abergavenny Museum's Keep and the Diamond Anniversary of the opening of the museum, this workshop hopes to celebrate and record shared and individual living memories of Abergavenny Castle and the surrounding area. Participants will be encouraged to share their memories of the castle. This session is also open to visitors new to the location, as an item from the exhibition could be used to record an imagined memory. There will be space provided too, as a part of the exhibition, for those happy to share (even anonymously) their memoirs of this central location in Abergavenny.

About Lynn Clausen

Following a 20 year teaching career, Lynn gained her MA in Creative Writing while setting up her own freelance enterprise (Raven Drama) putting the creative process at the heart of her work. Lynn offers drama and writing workshops, for all ages; in and around the Black Mountains. She also prepares learners for LAMDA exams with a focus on public speaking and acting. Lynn deeply appreciates the value of family and community memoir and life-history. She feels strongly that we are all, in part, our stories – including those that have gone before. Lynn is currently compiling the memoirs of her grandfather, born in 1909.

Ticket price of £7 covers entry for 2 participants; the aim being that the pair will work together as an intergenerational team. Suitable for ages 7 plus.

If you are interested in attending but don’t have anyone in mind to come with do get in touch and we will try and match you with a workshop partner.

Light refreshments will be available.
