Spring Fling x
Wigtown Book Festival
We are delighted that the Spring Fling x Wigtown Book Festival Residency returned for 2019. Poet Ken Cockburn invites you to explore the links between birds, art and the landscape in which it is made. Ken travelled the Spring Fling studios talking to makers and visitors alike, holding workshops and creating new work to be revealed for Wigtown Book Festival (27 September – 1 October 2019). Find out more about Ken Cockburn and the residency here.
Throughout Spring Fling weekend, Ken held workshops and readings at a range of studios across the region:
On Saturday I saw a curlew flying across the moorland.
Last week in the South Lakes I saw a heron wading.
Today in the art gallery we saw a pile of taxidermied kingfishers.
