Upcoming event: workshop with Virginia Astley

Join writer-in residence, Virginia Astley, for a workshop in the atmospheric setting of Hardy’s Potting Shed.

For old association’s sake’

‘Past things retold were to her as things existent, Things present but as a tale’

Hardy in his writing was always aware of the seasons and of the passing of time.

‘For old association’s sake’ is a phrase that echoes throughout. There is in Hardy’s work a continual awareness of both the past in the present and the present in the past. This workshop will include a walk, revisiting Rainbarrow.

Meet at the Visitor Centre.

Perfect for all ages and abilities. Includes (muddy) footpath walking of approx. an hour.


When? 21st October 2017 10.30 am – 1pm 

Where? Hardy’s Cottage

Bookings through 01305 262366. £5.00 per session, plus normal admission.
