Cathedral Treasures 1 - Creative writing inspired by old or unusual objects
(preceded by walk around the cathedral with historian Canon Weston at 10am)
Cathedral Treasures 1:
This is the first of two linked sessions (part 2: Saturday, October 7th) in which participants will have an opportunity to examine some of the hidden treasures of the cathedral as a stimulus for writing. In this first session participants will be encouraged to choose one object each, examine it with all their senses, use common research tools to inform their study and start to produce a single piece of new writing.
