The guided writing workshops will include a tour and will draw inspiration from the homes, the landscape, and reflect on domestic life, leisure, work and change. The workshop will include writing exercises and games engaging with the environments and responding to their histories and yours, and will provide time to experience the homes and surrounds, and to write and discuss together.
