Saturday 6 April, from 12.30 – 2.30 pm
Box Factory
59 Regent St,

Cost: $8

The haiku is an ancient Japanese poetry form, but it is as relevant today as it has always been. Western poets have adopted and adapted the form to suit contemporary tastes, and the fact that the form continues to evolve in Japan is, paradoxically, entirely in keeping with tradition.

Bindii member Julia Wakefield will give a brief introduction to the combined complexity and simplicity of the haiku form. After a short break, there will be a series of group exercises that focus on composing haiku.

Refreshments provided.
