Dr Johnson's Reading Circle
Wednesday 24 August, 2.30pm
Work in collaboration with our Artist in Residence, Lorena Carbajal, to engage in a lively exploration of Dr Johnson’s great Dictionary and create your own mini-dictionary of playful words.
The workshop has been devised by the Artist as an unusual 'English and Art lesson', using Johnson's Dictionary as a starting point to play games with language. Participants will engage with with words, definitions, translations, and the illogical, focusing in particular on the theme of mistakes and mistranslations.
The workshop is run by the Artist and an experienced EFL teacher, as part of the Artist's residency at Dr Johnson's House.
To reserve your FREE place, please contact the Deputy Curator
