  • Poetry from Art
  • 17 March 2018, 2pm - 4.30pm
  • Focal Point Gallery

As part of ‘Other Voices, Other Rooms’, Focal Point Gallery are pleased to offer an exciting opportunity for poets and artists of all abilities. A poetry workshop with Thyrza Leyshon will take place on Saturday 17 March between 2pm and 4.30pm and will help attendees to explore their engagement with drawings by Paul Anthony Harford, and write new poems in response.

There will be access to the exhibition during the workshop, but in preparation it would be helpful for participants to spend some time earlier with the drawings to find an image that they find particularly arresting.

In the workshop recurring themes in Harford’s work will be explored and participants will be invited to consider how they can put themselves inside the image as well as deciding what they really want to say, and how that relates to their own lives and the artworks.
