There are still a few places left on my Writing Workshop – out in the field and at the Sill – next Saturday 10th August – looking at lichen. Bring botanical lenses and magnifying glasses! And cross fingers for fine weather.
Iain’s photographs are stunning. They beautifully capture these strange life forms that do so well in Northumberland – a testament to our clean air and fresh elements. We’ll be moving between the real thing and samples of his images to write our own poems and short pieces in appreciation of lichen. Even the word itself is mysterious and exciting – whichever way you say it – lichen!
