The first hour of the day was spent working with words with the symposium poet. David Annwn showed us how to increase our 'word hoard' with exercises in word association, pairing random words, examining our feelings about loved and hated objects, and translating 'nappy' into German, Finnish and Japanese. Then we took our collections of words with us into the individual workshops.The above photo is of Suzanne Moore's group working on making their books. Frantic scenes of pasting have been observed. And a lot of tables moved.
Thomas Ingmire's class are taking a break to look at his day books. He encourages students to react to the sounds around them by making marks and his daily pages are bound up into small books. The group was experimenting with musical mark-making today.
