River of Machines, River of Gods – Writing & Screening Printing Workshop

June 11 - June 12

River of Machines, River of Gods @ Double Elephant Print Workshop

Combine reading and writing poetry with printmaking during this two-day workshop with the poet John Wedgwood Clarke and printmaker George Barron. Material for the workshop will draw on John’s work on the Red River, a small post-industrial river in West Cornwall, and expand out to explore hidden local rivers important to you. We’ll begin with reading and discussion, move on to writing, then explore the translation of words into prints that may or may not include text.

This is open to everyone interested in the longstanding dialogue between writing and printing: no previous experience necessary.

In preparation for the workshop we recommend you take a look at www.redriverpoetry.com and view the BBC FOUR documentary Cornwall’s Red River 


Two-day workshop – Saturday & Sunday, 11-12 June, 10-4pm

Booking essential, ticket prices – £120
