Sentimental value: a love letter writing workshop

9 March @ 13:30 15:00

Sentimental value: a love letter and emotional writing workshop

Join us this Saturday 9 March, 1.30pm-3pm for an online love letter writing workshop led by Gwen Dupré <3 ☁️🕯🦢🪶🤍

This workshop is part of a wider public programme accompanying Ashleigh Fisk’s exhibition, ‘I will live many years in this room’, showing at SET Lewisham until 24 March.

Participants are invited to bring a love token or object for inspiration and to share with the group. This could be something that might be referred to as having “sentimental value”, and can be a physical or remembered object. We will look at examples of love letters and emotionally-infused writing and objects, including works from the exhibition, Adele lyrics, TV show references, and early modern locked letters, before writing our own letters.

This workshop is free and open to all but please RSVP here. Participants will be sent a zoom link and joining details in advance.

The exhibition I will live many years in this room is open Thurs-Sun 1.30pm-6pm.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
