Celtic Traditions of Creativity
Bardic Workshop – Jonathan Woolley

Early Welsh and Irish bardism permeates modern druidry: bards left not only inspiring writings but also techniques for attaining creative inspiration. This workshop introduces historical bards before focussing on their methods. Integral to creative work is inspiration, which contemporary druids loosely translate as ‘awen’ – in a spiritually engaged path, the bardic path, be it musical or poetic, is unpacked further for practical help.

Jonathan Woolley leads this well-structured, clear and engaged half-day class, which teaches several practical exercises and interactive methods — leaving space for individual experience. The afternoon culminates with a sharing circle (eisteddfod). If you’re a creative, a radical, or a nature-lover, this afternoon is for you.

Jonathan Woolley is passionate about the radical potential of the creative arts: he writes for the acclaimed activist site Gods and Radicals and is active in OBOD. In his professional life he is a social anthropologist (PhD Cambridge) whose research focusses on ecology, in particular how people interact with their local landscape. He is friendly, warm and a gifted teacher.  All welcome.
