A writing workshop with the jewellery theme is being held this Saturday at the Powysland Museum from 11.30am-1.30pm.

The workshop will be led by Pat Edwards, who is a writer, teacher and performer from Mid Wales.

Her poetry has appeared more recently in Prole, Magma, Ink Sweat and Tears and Deborah Alma’s #Me Too Anthology. Pat runs verbatim poetry open mic nights and curates Welshpool Poetry Festival.

Pat said: “We all have a relationship with jewellery - our own, the pieces we give as gifts, and the jewellery we know as heirlooms within the family.

“Jewellery can have monetary and emotional value, hold happy, sad, unexplored memories. The social and historical significance of jewellery has echoed down the centuries and is a rich source for any writer.

“Come and spend a while in the company of others who want to delve into the writing prompts I will provide. It doesn’t matter where you are on your writing journey, a total beginner or someone who has experience. Come and see what you can get down on paper - there’s no compulsion to share - you can take your ideas home with you, and who knows where they might lead.”

The workshop is part of Powysland Museum’s temporary exhibition on archaeological jewellery and “Saving Treasures; Telling Stories” - an all-Wales Project about bringing archaeology to life and enabling community engagement. It is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and administered by Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales in partnership with the Federation of Museums and Galleries in Wales and the Portable Antiquities Scheme in Wales.
