Ulverston-based poet and creative writing tutor Geraldine Green is delighted that she is Writer-in-Residence here at the Quaker Tapestry Museum, Kendal.

As part of her residency Geraldine will be tutoring three creative writing workshops and hosting a reading, celebrating work written by participants during the workshops.

“I was absolutely thrilled when I was invited to be writer-in-residence at the Quaker Tapestry Museum. It follows on from my residency at Swarthmoor Hall, home of George Fox, Margaret Fell and the birthplace of the Quaker Movement, and from my residency at Brantwood, former home of John Ruskin.” says Geraldine

“The spirit of the Quakers, their ethos and peaceful reform, their concern for the environment and importance of communities, are all issues that are close to my heart and I think resonate most strongly in these uncertain times. It’s an honour to be writer-in-residence at such a beautiful venue, celebrating the creation of 77 Embroidered Panels depicting the history of the Quakers from the 1600’s to the 21st century – and to be celebrating the panels through poetry and prose is a double delight!”

The workshops are…

25th May 2019 – Wool Yarn and more…

24th August 2019 – The Fabric of Kendal

26th October 2019 – The Language of Fabric

“Brilliant, in many ways. I love embroidery, so thought this would just be interesting to see, but found it was incredibly informative not just about individual Quakers but how much they have done in our society.”

Well worth the entrance fee for the educational aspects alone!
