A day of writing which will draw on the built environment of the Museum and delve into your own experiences. 

In a warm and supportive atmosphere, and using a variety of writing forms, Dave will guide you through a day of concentrated but fun writing, and will help you to look at your work from new perspectives and, perhaps, unexpected angles. The workshop is suitable for both beginners and those with writing experience.
