Writing on the Green

September 7, 2012

Regular art classes, organised by Tolquhon Gallery, are held at the Tolquhon Studio (Art on the Green) in Udny Green, a picturesque conservation village, 12 miles north of Aberdeen. The former Fleeman’s Shop on the village green has been transformed into an attractive, well equipped studio. The Tolquhon workshops include creative writing workshops, and a new series led by highly experienced tutor, Haworth Hodgkinson, will begin in the autumn.

Have you always wanted to write but not known where to begin? Perhaps you have been writing poetry or fiction in secret, but never allowed your work out in public. Maybe you are an experienced writer in need of feedback and the impetus to write. Haworth’s informal and friendly workshops will allow you to explore many aspects of the creative process, including inspiration, performance and publication, and, most importantly, they will get you writing!

Haworth is a poet and playwright, composer and improvising musician. Aside from writing and leading workshops, his work often involves collaboration with other writers, musicians and dancers, as well as solo performances combining poetry and music. He performs as poet and musician with the multimedia Blue Salt Collective, and is the founding director of North-East Scotland’s New Words festival of new writing in performance.

There will be two creative writing classes beginning in September, one on Monday evenings and one on Tuesday afternoons. Each will run for 10 weeks. The Monday classes will run from 10 September to 26 November (7.15pm–9.15pm) and the Tuesday classes will run from 11 September to 27 November (2.15pm–4.15pm). The classes will be suitable for both new writers and those with some experience. Classes cost £120 for a 10 week block.

For more information or to register your interest please contact Tolquhon Gallery. If different times or dates would suit you, please let us know.
