Within the crow family are some of the most intelligent creatures in the natural world, able to solve problems that would stump most four-year –olds. They appear in the mythology of countless communities across the world, representing everything from death to creation.
This workshop will explore, at a very basic level, both the natural history of the birds and the myths surrounding them. We will also spend some time enjoying the exhibition, A Murder of Crows at the Ferini Gallery. We will share some of the poetry already written about the birds. Then after a few warm-up writing exercises, we will turn our hands to creating our own poems or flash fiction on the subject.
Teas and coffees included. Bring your own lunch
