£25 Booking Essential | Book Here | Adults only

Join us for an afternoon poetry workshop inspired by the beautiful surroundings of Elizabeth Gaskell’s House. Taking inspiration from John Ruskin’s ideas about observation, and in honour of our Ruskin exhibition, you will use the exquisite features of the House and garden to write original pieces of poetry based on focused contemplation. Led by poet Rachel Sills, the 3-hour workshop will include the opportunity to explore the House, and to share your work (if you like) for feedback. Afternoon workshop, 12 – 3pm
