Writing Together with Sipho Ndlovu

Edward Lear for Families – Writing Together with Sipho Ndlovu (family)


Come along online this half term!

Get ready to jumble and tumble over words and create your own family tales, stories and poems.

Join spoken word artist and poet, Sipho Ndlovu, for an online Zoom workshop designed especially for families.

Be inspired by our 19th-century print ‘Tabuan Parakeet’ and the work of Edward Lear, an English artist and poet, known for his literary nonsense in poetry and prose.

Suitable for children aged 6 and over; one ticket equals one household/family. Children must have an adult present while on Zoom.
