Event Date: 11th June 2021Category: Adult Carers
The days are growing lighter and restrictions are lifting just in time for Carers Week.
This year our carers will have the opportunity to come together in a social event led by local willow artist Phil Bradley. The day has been organised with our lovely friends at Wordsworth Trust as part of Dorothy Wordsworth’s 250th birthday celebrations and the opening of the new Wordsworth museum.
When: Friday 11 June 10am-4pm
Where: Kirkstile Village Hall, Dean
During the day we will make little willow huts or bird houses inspired by the moss hut William and Dorothy built in their garden as an escape from the world. If our usual poetry meetings are anything to go by there will also be lots of chat about life and the universe and much laughter and, if time allows, we might write a poem! This is a poetry group with a difference where the main focus is support, craic and laughter and the poems are a collective effort based on conversations. It’s a very supportive and uplifting group, so if you can’t make the day but would like to attend our monthly meetings then please get in touch.
Due to social distancing places on the workshop are limited to 12 on a first come first served basis. If you need transport, we will do our best to accommodate this.
In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more, here is a link to a lovely little film made by Wordsworth Trust on the commissioning of their very own Moss Hut.
