Activity: The Lost Language of Making
Date: Feb-Mar 2021
Participants/consultant: Star Project/Karen Herbison
At the start of 2021, during the second national lockdown, STAR project hosted online poetry workshops for The Lost Language of Making project. Facilitated by local writer/director Karen Herbison of H-Arts, workshop participants used historical Scottish making terms as a stimulus to write their own poetry. Their finished work has been published as a short anthology, a copy of which is held in the collection of Renfrewshire’s Heritage Centre. A short film of participants reciting their own work online was also recorded by Media Monty, to be shared publicly as part of 2021’s digital Sma’ Shot Day celebrations.
