TAMSIN KERR will help you explore place through art journal and wriiting “Some of the inspirations for this course: Barbara Hurd, Terry Tempest Williams, Mary Oliver, Barbara York Main, Annie Dillard, Margaret Sommerville, Freya Matthews, David Haskell, Judith Wright, Kathleen McArthur, John Wolesley, Andy Goldsworthy, and so many more.
You’ll be putting together our own responses to one small area in our vine rainforest through conversation, wild printing, weaving, and words: a start to the many partnerships we can form with place wherever we are.
You’ll learn a good process for writing words that speak to our emotions with intelligence and poetic conciseness; based upon reading, finding the still centre of a writing site, creatively transforming the blank page, and listening to both the place and to your own words.”
Cost: $275 includes morning and afternoon teas, materials, and two days tuition. Bring lunch to share.
