This Exploration Haiku Poetry Workshop will be led by Julia Grace, Multi Media Artist & Writer.
Come explore the spirit of haiku, a form of Japanese poetry almost inseparable from nature. Learn about the true essence of haiku and how it is so much more than the syllabic form poem we are taught in elementary school. Listen to a reading of haiku by the old masters and modern poets, and write your own haiku inspired by the gardens in winter and the Ikebana floral arrangements that will be on display in the Lecture Room, along with Japanese quilts on exhibit. Please bring a notebook and pen or pencil.
Cost: $25 members; $35 non-members. Pre-registration required.
