Brighter Garden: Poetry Ireland Workshop


New Workshop

Celebrate Poetry Day Ireland at The Crescent Arts Centre!

“Here is a brighter garden* [in a bottle!]” is a poetry workshop that invites participants to plant a poem and nurture it as it grows.

This workshop, facilitated by Bebe Ashley, has three key elements.

Participants are first invited to build a small garden in a bottle, you'll then write a poem on paper embedded with wildflower seeds, and finally plant your poem into the garden.

Over the coming weeks and months, you'll be able to watch the seed paper germinate and your poems bloom.

This event is supported by Poetry Ireland for Poetry Day Ireland 2023.
