Liverpool’s museums are marking International Women’s Day 2010 with a week of special events which aim to explore and celebrate the contributions women have made to our culture. As part of the programme, the Walker Art Gallery is holding a session entitled ‘Women Artists – A Poet’s View’ on Monday 8th March which promises to give an insight to female poets, charting the rise of women artists through poetry.
Led by Gladys Mary Coles, the workshop also gives the chance for attendees to get in touch with their creative side and get writing themselves. Guidance will be on hand to help develop writing technique, so complete novices and practising poets alike are catered for. The array of works on display in the exhibition are sure to drum up inspiration for visitors to produce their own poetic masterpieces.
The session takes place from 10am to 1pm. Places are limited, to book call 0151 478 4178.
