The School

In collaboration with Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and WestWords, The Red Room Company will run a special series of free Poetry Object workshops to spark the imaginations of students and produce beautiful and inspiring poems.

The Project

The Red Room Company teamed up with Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and WestWords in July to present a special series of workshops at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. Lilly Blue led students in writing activities inspired by the Poetry Object learning resource, where students delved into the undiscovered magic of their favourite objects. During the workshops, celebrated comic artist Leigh Rigozzi sketched students and their poetic inspirations.
