Loved&Lost: a creative workshop
Basingstoke Discovery Centre
Friday 8th December 2023
10.30am to 12.00pm
The Loved&Lost workshop invites attendees to bring a photograph or picture of a person lost. Using this image as a starting point, along with Simon's own photographic exhibition on display in the library, this creative workshop allows attendees to engage with their own loss through guided activations and conversation starters. Through written, illustrative, or photographic responses, this process will allow us to acknowledge our loss and remember those who are no longer with us.
