Poetrytreat with Katherine McMahon and Jo Walker

Poetrytreat exhibition for StAnza 2016 Poetry Festival:

For StAnza 2016 six poets were invited to write a poem in response to the gift of a craft object. This was chosen for them from the forthcoming Spring/Summer treat Store collection which is now available to purchase at our treat Store online.  The varied responses show how an object can stimulate the imagination in many and sometimes unexpected directions.


Each week we have been releasing each poem along with the craft object that inspired it. This week we will be focusing on the words of poet Katherine McMahon and ceramics handmade by Jo Walker.
