Exploring Nature’s Lost Words

Mirfield Library, East Thorpe Lodge, Huddersfield Rd, Mirfield WF14 8AN

Face to Face

Join librarians Leah & Alma at Mirfield library for three uplifting sessions exploring words, nature, stories and creativity.

We will be using the book The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane & Jackie Morris as our theme, an award-winning book of stunning illustrations and haunting poems that celebrate words from nature that have disappeared from children’s lives: heron, ivy, dandelion, wren…

We aim to deliver fun, gentle sessions that support wellbeing. We’ll be exploring nature locally, playing games and creating art. The final session will be supported by poet Emma Decent who will help us create our own short poems.
