Shoes: The Poetry Workshop

“Shoes, the secret face of my inner life” Charles Simic

We all wear them to protect our feet, yet shoes are objects that take many forms beyond the functional. From Seven League Boots to Glass Slippers to Red Dancing Shoes, footwear can be powerful symbols of class, of empowerment, or of transformation. In this workshop we will explore visual images, folktale and touchstone poems to inspire us towards the production of new work.
