John Hedley

Natural Forms/Crete and Ynys Môn

Hedley’s prints and painting depict the primordial essence of the world we inhabit. They are detailed and complex studies of seemingly random forms found in nature.


Embedded within his work is a long-standing dialogue between the island cultures of Crete and Ynys Môn: works are made with Welsh material in Greece and vice-versa, often acknowledging the remarkable geological similarities of the two island and extending to the study of Greek icon painting and its relation to figuration and abstraction.

Sound Poetics

Led by poet, writer and broadcaster

Seán Street

This workshop will explore the sound under sound, seek to develop active listening to both the world around us and the sound inside text, and examine species of silence and stillness, uncovering layers of meaning through sonic expression in our relationship with things. Using a heightened awareness of internal and external sound we will seek to recalibrate our auditory responses and their expression within our own writing.


Seán Street's latest full collection is Camera Obscura (Rockingham Press, 2016.) A pamphlet-length sequence, Talk, Radio: Poems of Transmission, was published by Lapwing in 2017. Prose includes a trilogy on sound, The Poetry of Radio (Routledge,2013),The Memory of Sound (Routledge, 2015) and Sound Poetics: Interaction and Personal Identity,(Palgrave, 2017). Among other works are books on Gerard Manley Hopkins and the Dymock Poets. He is Emeritus Professor at Bournemouth University and over many years has made radio documentaries and features for various broadcasters including the BBC, CBC in Canada and ABC in Australia.

No special experience or skills are necessary. Just come as you are!

'Something else: poetry is the lie that serves the truth'

A workshop with poet and playwright Phil Bowen.   According to Charles Causley, 'A good poem is always about something else other than what it's about'. Poems don't have to tell the truth but they have to be true to themselves even if they're telling a lie.

Phil Bowen is a poet, performer, biographer and playwright who has worked in over 500 schools in more than thirty counties as a poet-in-education since becoming a freelance writer in 1994. He has published three full collections - Variety's Hammer and Starfly, both with Stride, and Nowhere's Far: New & Selected Poems 1990 -2008 with Salt Publications, printed and reprinted in 2009. http://www.philbowen.co.uk/
