Gamesley taster

This morning we were working in Gamesley Derbyshire, creating poems and artworks with local people and children from St Margaret's RC Primary School. In just 2 hours we created 16 self reflection poems and 8 concrete poems. We are hoping to work with them again later in the year. More photos of the session at

moved from a large house
with a bit of
thin features
and a dozen rooms to
a small back-to-back
green eyes long lashes
terrace house two up two down
salt and pepper eyebrows
backdoor with a lived-in face
cried wanting to go home
my mum said you are home son
this is your home now.
