Writing Magic: Casting Word-Spells with Hampshire Poet Nazneen
Winchester City Museum
Saturday 22nd April 2023 - 2pm
As part of Winchester Books Festival we invite children and families to craft words and magic at this free entry workshop with Nazneen Ahmed Pathak.
Lots of our favourite magical stories use poems as spells (including Nazneen's book for children, City of Stolen Magic, which is coming out in June). Learn to create your own magical spell-poems with Nazneen, and make special amulet bracelets - so you can wear them, too.
This workshop is aimed at children from 5 - 12yrs
All crafting resources are provided.
Tickets are FREE, please reserve a free ticket if you would like to attend.
Winchester Poetry Festival will use all reasonable efforts to deliver advertised programmes and other activities in accordance with the descriptions set out on the website and in print.
Winchester Poetry Festival reserves the right if necessary:
to alter the timetable, location, number of events or method of delivery provided such alterations are reasonable
to make reasonable variations to the content and speakers and tutors
to cancel events that for whatever reason are no longer possible to present (if for example too few tickets/places are sold to make the event viable).
to postpone events and activities if the stated poet/speaker/workshop leader is unwell
