About The Workshop at Artcore's Reading Room As part of a new project in partnership with Derby Cathedral, Artcore has invited Sophie Sparham to lead a creative poetry workshop in our new Reading Room in the Artcore Cabin. We will take inspiration from pieces of writing and poetry, to create poems around the themes of hope and peace and write them onto paper doves that will become a part of a large installation at Derby Cathedral. This workshop will be nice and chilled. No previous writing experience is needed. Novice or expert, come along and have a go.
Come and join us for our Express Yourself Project for the theme Self Expression and Potraiture.The sessions are on every Tuesday from 4:45-6:45pm.
