The Jane Austen Sewing Kit Creative
Jane Austen (1775-1817), one of the most famous authors in the English language gathered the themes for her work from the commonplace of domestic scenarios she experienced in her daily life. She ‘sewed’ from the ordinary fabric of what she saw and heard, making such wondrous ‘cloths’, woven from the most accurate insights. Jane Austen created a host of wonderful, memorable characters through her keen sense of observation and attention to the foibles of human nature.
The Jane Austen Sewing Kit Workshop invites participants, in a relaxed, informal atmosphere, to explore the possibilities of bringing together the language of one art form and ‘marrying’ it with another. ‘Sewing’ lines of memory (romantic or otherwise) or drawing up a colourful character profile (a la Mrs. Bennett or Mr. Collins) will also help the writer introduce a note of humour, partly the reason Jane Austen’s work is so popular. Most of all, the intention is to renew each individual writer’s love affair with language itself.
