Workshops in Barnsley Tomorrow

This is a brief reminder.

If anyone is passing through Barnsley tomorrow, why not pop into Wentworth Castle for one of two workshops:

The Garden of Earthly Delights
Precious Cargo

Join author Adam Lowe as he leads you on a creative and imaginative journey through landscapes real and imagined at both Cannon Hall and Wentworth Castle.

Explore the stories and histories of Barnsley through the five senses and develop your own responses to the gardens, landmarks and plant collections. This is at once a tour of the sites, using storytelling and poetry, and a workshop in you are witness and creator.

Aimed at people of any experience level, the workshop will culminate in the opportunity to read your work, get feedback from an award-winning writer and publisher, and have your own writing developed for inclusion in the Stories of the World project.

The Precious Cargo project is led by young people and more than 15 museums in Yorkshire. It is part of London 2012 Cultural Olympiad programme Stories of the World, which is led by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) in partnership with the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG).
8th May and 5th June 2011 12 noon to 1.30pm and 2pm to 3.30pm
