Words and Wonders – summer workshops in Monsal Dale

Join artists and storytellers working with Derbyshire’s Museums Service to explore the streams, stones and wider landscapes around Millers Dale.

From 18th Century prints to 20th Century postcards, from Erasmus Darwin’s provocative poetry to accounts of the arrival of the railways, we’ll play with words and images, compose poems, write postcards and draw inspiration from the Dales around us.

Overall, our works will be woven together as images over-painted with words, recording voices shifting into the sounds of water over stone and edited into a final piece for on-line appreciation.

Sessions: Wednesday 4th August, 1.30 – 4.30 pm, 6.30 – 8.30 pm. These are drop-in sessions: just turn up and join for as long or as short as you like. If you want to come as a group – get in touch and we will accommodate your needs.

Booked slots: if you or yuor group would prefer a more tightly structured workshop, you can book onto a session, or have a workshop arranged for your specific group (minimum group size 10 people).

Costs: workshops are free: the artists time if covered by the project.

Meeting point: White Lodge Car Park on A6 just south of Taddington (Mondal Dale bus stop).

What to bring: we’ll provide paper and writing materials and a couple of cameras but you might want your own notebook, a camera, clothing and footwaer to suit the weather and a flask/drink.

    Sounds like a really ace way to spend some time this summer … appealing enough that I will be checking my diary to find time to visit!
