Wild Twins course 2021

I am so happy to finally announce the details for this. Wild Twins course will ride again in 2021 as an online expedition, with a mixture of live & recorded classes, solo and paired assignments, as well as a parcel of wild materials sent to you before the course starts. The course will run from 25th April until 15 May. See http://www.wyrdschool.ie for all the course details, joining information and prices.

What we might lose in not being in the same room together, we will gain by folks who are far away being able to join us, no one needs to fly or travel, and we will all find the wildness in our own locales, as well as in our art and writing. This will be the third outing for our unique course, where we bring image and language together, where we entice the outside in, and make everything from scratch, no tired machine-made thoughts pass muster. We’ll branch like trees and chase stories round the woods. You’ll see more here on my website as well as previous incarnations of this work. This year we are providing 3 low-cost bursaries.

You will sow your wild words, uncivilise your art, learn how to make paints, inks, cordage, books, charcoal, quills and brushes from what you can find, pick poems from hedgerows and find stories under stones. We will paint from the point of view of boulders, and moss, take time to hear the opinion of passing migratory birds. With all this, we will learn how to welcome the wild twin home.

You can also go direct to my co-teacher, Dark Mountain Project co-founder Paul Kingsnorth’s school. Booking is via email from the www.wyrdschool.ie / the wild twins online expedition page.

Everyone is welcome. We will be teaching in English. We look forward to meeting you.
