CARTOON DRAWING
A Family Workshop with Malcolm Whittall

Touch Paper is a relaxed two-hour workshop run by poet and Welshpool Poetry Festival director, Pat Edwards, designed around a local theme, offering participants of any level of experience the chance to read, write and share poetry. Booking via the Poetry Pharmacy is best so that we can ensure plenty of space and resources. You may know Pat from the Dispensary Cafe, so you’ll know she doesn’t bite (unless it’s into a big wedge of cake!) and that she will make you very welcome.

This is a gem of a book, packed full of truly stunning photographs, as Andrew takes us through the changing seasons.
