'Symbolism of Flowers' workshop with Terri Potter

Throughout history flowers have been used to convey feelings of joy; sentiment and pride; it has been said that ‘one bloom says a thousand words’. Come along to this special workshop to discover more about the symbolism of flowers and to have a chance to create a simple design of your own to take home.

1pm - 2pm

Announcement and readings of our poetry competition winners.

2pm - 3pm

Poetry group from Harlow U3A. The Great War poets were all serving soldiers with few exceptions. Instead of revising these poems the group have decided to read poems by women writing during the First World War. They hope that this will broaden peoples views of the war and those writing about it.

3pm - 4pm 

Local established writing group the Inn Scribers will recite a mix of poetry from the First World War poets as well as poetry of their own.

No need to book. All donations on the day will be given to The Royal British Legion and Harlow Art Trust.
