The poet Edward Lear revelled in nonsense and laughable limericks. His poetry is peopled by such original creatures as the Quangle-Wangle, the Pobble, the Scroobious Pip, and the Jumblies.
In this workshop for children, led by Sara Lodge, we’ll be playing with rhyme and rhythm, nuance and nonsense, and enjoying Lear’s limericks in order to write and illustrate our own. Children will also have the chance to create their own illuminated alphabet letter and verse, inspired by Lear’s nonsense alphabets.
This workshop is aimed at children aged 7 – 11 (P4s to P7s). All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
In association with the School of English, University of St Andrews
