Geraldine and I are running a family poetry workshop, Say Hello to Haiku!, at Seamus Heaney Homeplace on Saturday 4th August, 11am.
"Seamus Heaney and WB Yeats both had a fascination with the Japanese art form haiku. A typical haiku is a three-line poem, often featuring an observation about a fleeting moment involving nature. In this fun and accessible workshop, parents/carers and their children can work together to create their own haiku exploring a variety of topics."
Tickets are available to book now, £5 adult, £3 child. Come along and introduce your children to joy of haiku and play some fun writing games!
