Looking to find inspiration in nature and the wonder of trees? Join us for a writing workshop in the grounds of Westbury Arts Centre, a Grade II listed 17th Century farmhouse building that now provides both permanent and temporary studio spaces for artists. The gardens include a number of ancient apple trees that can be relied on to patiently provide inspiration for your reflections on nature and our relationship with it.

No previous writing experience is necessary and there will be a range of activities to get you writing if it’s new to you.
