CREATIVE WRITING COURSE – with SARA RIDGLEY – MAY 29, 30

Successful, published author, poet and highly regarded tutor, Sara Ridgley, will be holding
two short CREATIVE WRITING courses this summer. The first one will be held on the weekend of
MAY 29/30 and a second is being planned for July (exact dates still to be announced)

In addition:

SILK PAINTING – with SARA RIDGLEY – MAY 31

Multi-talented Sara will also be teaching a short SILK PAINTING workshop on  May  31.
After just one morning’s instruction in her techniques on ‘SILK PAINTING IN THE  MICROWAVE’ , you’ll take home a finished project: a beautiful hand-painted scarf !

About Sara:

Sara has been a creative writer since she and her friend Deborah founded a school newspaper with the aid of a John Bull printing set in about 1968.  She is now an award-winning writer with around twenty books published.  Originally a linguist, she writes poetry, lyrics, features, travel articles and short stories, runs Writers of Note! Limited, a music publishing company with her business partner, West End Musical Director Gavin Mole and is a motivational Creative Writing Tutor for Buckinghamshire.  On the flimsiest of excuses, she travels to Greece, her spiritual home, spending her first Greek Easter in Skiathos in 2010, returning to the UK via Volos and Thessaloniki on a solo adventure, camera and notebook in hand. She aims to write every day and inspire others to discover their creativity, rejoice in their zest for life and develop their audacity.  Sara has also taught silk dyeing and beading. She loves textiles and colour, experimentation and innovation, photography, card-making and anything turquoise.
