Our popular course, inviting participants to explore Avoncroft’s collections creatively, returns for its second year!

Each of the iconic venues we will be using for this series of creative writing workshops offers its own time period and unique stimulus. No prior experience is needed to attend any of the workshops; participants can attend each workshop as a standalone activity, or treat them as a series.

Each session focuses on a particular building but the entire site is available for you to explore and inspire your writing!

Although the formal part of each creative writing workshop runs from 10.00am – 1.00 pm, participants are welcome to stay on after lunch time to take part in informal supported extended writing.
