How do we at Creative Nottingham love our readers? Let me count the ways….Actually, Elizabeth Barrett Browning has already written that poem.  Perhaps I should attend the one-day workshop on unusual approaches to the love poem, being run by the Nottingham Poetry Series, on 13 February (“just in time” poetry, no less).   The fee is £24 and their website has details of other, multi-session workshops.  It doesn’t say where the workshop will be held, but I suspect there is a clue in the name of the organisation.

If you want to spin a yarn, but not with poetry, then you might like the Heart Art fund raiser on 12 February. This could see you knitting on the spot, your contribution to a gigantic heart.  Organised by Knit Nottingham, it is taking place not at their Mansfield Road shop, but at Davenport’s Shop of Originality in the city centre.

If you want to kit yourself out for Valentines Day, rather than knit yourself, the Craft and Design Fair, put on by Curiosity.Haus, on Saturday, 13 Feb, at the Orange Tree on Shakespeare Street could be just the thing.  See our Community site for full details, including their very crafty way for you to get cheap cocktails.
