It is time for the Annual Sculpture Trail at the Jinney Ring Craft Centre in Hanbury. This is the 13th Trail and my 2nd year of offering a writing workshop linked to the sculptures.
One of my first jobs when I got back from Australia was to arrange a meeting, having secured the repeat workshop back in April.
It was also my first chance to visit this year’s trail and I spent a good hour taking photos and scribbling notes. There is always a preview of the Trail and I would have liked to have been available to attend but I was some 40,000 feet in the clouds at the time.
This year they have an added area, The Secret Garden and the work in there will take your breath away!
As with every year a range of Local and National Sculptors are exhibiting on the trail and the work is for sale. There are several pieces which would look great in our garden!
So come and join us and get creative.
There will be cake!
Last year was great fun and we had an exhibition in the Restaurant for 3 months which was read by a LOT of people.
The writing activities/workshop content is different from last year – as are the sculptures, so if this was something you enjoyed last year I would encourage you to come again. The workshop is suitable for writers of all abilities.
There will be no pressure to read your work during the workshop and you will have a while to edit and redraft poems before they are displayed. The exhibiting of the work this year will be at no cost to the poets (it wasn’t last year either) and it is a chance for people to access and read your work who may otherwise not do so.
As with last year, a reading of our Sculpture Trail poems will be organised in the Spring.
