Poetry Workshop: Words from a Country Churchyard I

A BioBlitz Arts Poetry Workshop

Aimed at children aged 8 – 12 years and their families. In this video workshop, Derek Adams will guide you through different approaches and prompts to create poetry inspired by the landscape of the Suffolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, focusing on the churchyard at Holy Trinity Church in Blythburgh. Derek leads a playful exploration of place through poetry. In this workshop, you’ll dive into discovering wildlife using words and capture your findings in inspiring phrases and poems.
