Poetrytreat with Julia Prescott and Beth Lamont

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.


We will be releasing each poem along with the craft object that inspired it. This week we will be focusing on the words of poet Julia Prescott and maker Beth Lamont.
