This workshop will use creative writing to empower and build confidence & connections. We will visit the gallery exhibitions to gain inspiration, then Helen will introduce techniques to generate your own creative responses. We'll  use a mixture of ‘internal’ stimulus (our own breath, voice and bodily awareness) external prompts (the gallery setting and artworks on display), and the group energy to create and, if you wish, share poems and stories. No previous experience necessary.
