Re-Wilding the Wordhoard and The Foundle Project – Three Women and a Chalkstone
Jo Sweeting, Louisa Thomsen Brits and Tanya Shadrick in conversation with Steph Fuller
Fri 10 July £12
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for an evening of lively discussion with letter carver, Jo Sweeting and writers Louisa Thomsen Brits and Tanya Shadrick – an exploration of landscape and language and an introduction to their Re-Wilding the Wordhoard project .
The first stage of Re-Wilding the Wordhoard – the Foundle project – took place on the Sussex Downs where the three women coaxed words from a chalk boulder using local dialect and the language of the landscape. There will be carving on show, extracts read from writers and poets who have contributed to the project as well as images and narrative from public encounters and discussion.
