Exploring Nature’s Lost Words

Wellbeing tools

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

 

We’ll be using ‘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 the children’s dictionary over the years: heron, ivy, dandelion, wren…

 

We aim to deliver fun, gentle sessions that support wellbeing and create a supportive environment. We’ll be exploring local nature, producing a piece of artwork and will finish by making our own keepsake poetry booklet.

 

No experience in poetry/craft/art needed.
