art events and writing
Vert Institute, established in 2015, operates from our house and studio on the edge of Vert Wood near the village of Laughton. The aim of the Institute is to offer unusual and stimulating art and writing events and workshops based on the creative ideas and experience of poet-novelist Kay Syrad and world-renowned land artist Chris Drury.
Events and workshops will be offered at various points throughout the year, always with a basis in ideas about and embodied experience of inside|outside, microcosm| macrocosm, and nature|culture.
The programme may include walks and opportunities for making work outside, small exhibitions, talks and performances, and a variety of writing workshops.
Current programme: A writing workshop on Saturday 26th September and a course starting 1st November. Contact Kay through this website for further details.
