Spaghetti & The Yeti: 3 hour creative writing & drawing workshop – 15/05/15 – Buy tickets


Mental Spaghetti, the art and creativity in mental health organisation, joins forces with Free Space Gallery to celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week 2015 with a drawing and creative writing workshop from poet and comedian, Mr John Hegley!

“John Hegley is a regular sell-out at The Edinburgh Festival. He has performed at the Montreal Comedy Festival, the USA Comedy Festival in Aspen, with Ulrika Jonsson & Anita Dobson in The Pyjama Game and on BBC R4’s Hearing With Hegley.

John Hegley is widely known as one of the country’s most innovative comic poets with several best-selling volumes of poetry to his name.”

A 3 hour creative arts session with John (with a 30 minute break), expect talking, laughing, thinking and drawing! We provide the materials, you provide yourselves. The rest is a surprise!
Please note workshop times: 2pm for 2:30pm start, 3:15pm 30 minute break (refreshments provided), 6pm finish.

There is a gallery at the venue, and Mental Spaghetti/Free Space Gallery organisers and artists will be around for a while after the workshop if you’d like to chat and view any work on show.
