Haiku at the Spoken Word Exhibition by h.ART at The Lobethal Fringe Event

h.ART are pleased to announce their inaugural Fringe exhibition event at the exciting new emerging arts venue at the State Heritage Onkaparinga Woollen Mill in Lobethal from 4 -19 March, 2017.
The focus is on the power of text and visual language to create dialogue.


Commencing Sunday, 5 March from 1.00 – 3.00 pm a Haiku Workshop conducted by Julia Wakefield-Houghton Printmaker, Illustrator and Teacher, followed by Haiku readings by members of Haiku Bindi, Belinda Broughton, Lyn Arden, Jill Gower and Maeve Archibald.

A short introduction to the rules and how we can break them will be followed by a series of writing exercises. Hopefully a few original haiku will result! Julia is a member of the only SA poetry group dedicated to writing Japanese style poetry in English.

Participation in the Haiku Workshop is by gold coin donation.
Bookings arranged by contacting
Anne Griffiths on 0431 374 616.

During this event we will also have a Haiku wall, which the public will be invited to contribute to.

At the end of the session at 2:45 we will have a performance by a Capella group Eclectica. The group consists of Maria Vouis, Nigel Casson and Julia Wakefield who sing unaccompanied 3 part harmonies, write and perform their own songs, poetry and short stories. Their performance of 15 to 20 minutes will feature songs, poetry and something unexpected.

Local schools will also be involved in a Haiku Wall.
