John Hegley: Fish and Ships

Live Stream

  • Workshops
  • Saturday 8 May, 11:00am
  • £12

Join poet, comedian and musician John Hegley in the making of fish and the drawing of ships.

Inspired by the French ‘Poisson d’Avril’, the continental April fools’ day tradition of fashioning and fastening paper fishes onto unsuspecting jackets. The creatures created, will be gifts more of a decorative and celebratory nature. The drawing of shipping will follow and the drawing out of what it is that puts a fair wind into our sails. Who might be a nourishing, interesting or entertaining travelling companion in the unravelling of our journey.

Suitable for unaccompanied adults and accompanied children of 9 plus.
