Key Stage 3: Alphabets Creative Writing Programme

Of new calligraphy that felt like home.
The letters of this alphabet were trees.
The capitals were orchards in full bloom,
The lines of script like briars coiled in ditches.’

Alphabets by Seamus Heaney


The Key Stage 3 Alphabets Education Programme at HomePlace has been devised to enable students to explore the world of language, letters and creativity through an interactive creative writing workshop. Pupils will also undertake a typography challenge as they go through our exhibition space.

Please note that participants should attend the workshop with their own iPad or
tablet.

In the last minutes he said more to her
Almost than in all their life together.

And i'll come up for you and you'll be glad
When i walk in the door ... isn't that right?’
