The Lost Words with Storywalks :

When Compton Verney curated and hosted The Lost Words exhibition featuring Robert Macfarlane's spell poems and the original illustrations by Jackie Morris, Storywalks and Number Seven were behind the scenes as Christopher Jelley was commissioned to create a digital trail within the grounds, enabling visitors to the exhibition to spell The Lost Words back into the landscape.

That initial trail has now neatly transitioned into a mobile one suitable for school grounds and festivals throughout the country.

If you are interested in finding out what Storywalks can offer your organisation, do get in touch. Prices vary depending on whether you require a one-day spell walk or more permanent digital trail.

School workshops also incorporate riddle writing and poetry workshops inspired by The Lost Words.

"Thank you very much for two fabulous workshops; it was really great to see the students absorbed in their tasks and listening intently to the poetry. I loved the writing tasks and prompts you did with them and thought the whole day was structured really well. They will certainly remember their day with the poet."
