Yesterday morning the story cafe relocated to the coffee shop at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery. We had a lovely time! It was great to find inspiration amongst the artworks and artefacts, and to gather round the table to talk about the ideas that had been generated, and how we might develop them. A knitted child’s sock from ancient Egypt, an old wooden chest and a painting of a woman with violently smeared lipstick were among the things that caught our attention. Take a look at the V & A website for a wealth of great ideas for developing poems and stories from art.
