LOVE Barrow Park project 2014
A family literacy project with he Wordsworth Trust, St George'sCE Primary School and Barrow Park

We worked with the Wordsworth Trust and St George’s School leading family sessions on writing about Barrow Park on the themes of childhood & playing and sense of place expressed in Wordsworth’s poetry. Thirty children and their parents visited Dove Cottage and took part in writing workshops.   Stories and poems were shared in the Park for family and friends as part of a ‘Big Picnic’ event.   Participants gained an Arts Award and their poems were displayed at Wordsworth Museum.
