Walking by Water with Jo Bell

Friday 16th July

Walking by Water: An artist-led, guided walk along the Leeds Liverpool canal from Gargrave to Bank Newton, then returning to Gargrave.

Led by Jo Bell.

Jo Bell is a poet, writer and boat dweller whose work is inspired by her life and work on the water. She was the first Canal Poet Laureate for the Poetry Society and is also a former industrial archaeologist. Her walk will focus on using the material and structures of the canal to look at the physical environment, exploring how we manage and channel water and use it as a resource.

Meeting Place: The Art Depot, off Eshton Road, Gargrave, 10.30 am

Writing Workshop with Jo Bell at The Art Depot, Gargrave

Jo’s afternoon workshop will explore water-inspired ways of writing in this particular place and time. All welcome, no experience necessary. Numbers will be limited so that the event takes place within government guidelines.
