Date: 10 June 2017

Location: Exbury Gardens

Time: 10:00

Cost: Free, advanced booking required

Help visual artist Noriko Suzuki-Bosco create a series of small handmade books.

Each book will feature an image of a tree from the New Forest and a word or a short phrase that reflects on the natural beauty of the environment. The books will be left in various locations around the New Forest, such as Exbury Gardens, Furzey Gardens, Lyndhurst Community Centre and on The Travelling Tree of Life.

Come along and add your thoughts and imaginations to the previous person's entry in response to the word or phrase that is left in the book in a sequential manner. This activity is inspired by the Japanese Renga poems, where the poem is created through a process of participative and cooperative poetry writing.

There will be two book-making and simple poetry writing workshops on the theme of Trees at Exbury Gardens on Saturday 10 June.

All materials provided.

Location: Exbury Gardens, Exbury, Southampton, SO45 1AZ

Cost: free but booking required in advance. Maximum 10 people per session.

This event is part of the New Forest Arts Festival 2017.
