Workshop – The Healing Art of Poetry

June 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm AEST

In this workshop, carers are invited to come along to discover poetry as an expressive and creative art form to explore and express one’s emotions.

Join award-writing poet and author, Lee Taylor-Friend who will guide you through various techniques such as simple poetry, free verse, rhyming poetry, mindfulness through verse and more. Be prepared to expand, express and explore. No previous writing experience required. All materials provided.

Some of the many benefits of poetry include being a positive self-help tool to increase your wellbeing and reduce stress, expressing yourself in a safe, non-judgemental and welcoming environment as well as expanding your horizons.

Cost – General Admission $10, Live Streaming $5

Time – 1.00pm for lunch with the workshop commencing at 1.30pm to 3.30pm
