Join writer-in residence, Virginia Astley, for a workshop in the atmospheric setting of Hardy’s Potting Shed.
‘My grandfather used to go to Conjuror Mynterne, out at Owlscombe, and a clever man a’ were, so I’ve heard grandf’er say’. Thomas Hardy
Besides Christianity, the Pagan world and its earlier customs influenced Hardy’s work. In Tess of the D’Urbervilles Dairyman Crick reminiscences about his grandfather going to a conjuror to check why the butter isn’t churning.
Led by our writer-in-residence, Virginia Astley, we will explore our own worlds, allowing what we hold close to ourselves to speak.
Perfect for all ages and abilities.
