Two-and-a-half-hour practical session.

Choose between a morning or afternoon session, either 10.30am–1pm OR 2pm–4.30pm.

This event is in-person only and will take place in the Museum's Learning Studio. Booking is essential.

With writer and performer Louise Larchbourne.

In this practical workshop, you will explore movement as a key to bringing words to life.

Starting with an investigation of all our senses, looking at how poets have worked with them, writer and performer Louise Larchbourne will proceed to focus on the dynamism of simple movement.

Participants will then be led into one or two galleries in the Museum, invited to respond to the objects, doing whatever feels comfortable and creating a piece of writing that reflects or springs from the experience.

All materials will be provided.

This is part of the Ashmolean Museum's Making a Mark season of events.
