'Off the Page' is a week long series of practical, fun sessions
on the theme of paper, books and tales which will be running
in local libraries and museums from Monday, 11th until Saturday,
16th May. The events include a writing workshop using images
from Herefordshire's library and museum collections, the
chance for people to try their hand at paper making, book
making and calligraphy and a pleasant evening walk around
Leominster and Ross with tales and stories along the route.
Chedgzoy from Herefordshire Council said, 'These special
events have been organized to coincide with Adult Learners
Week 2009 and people will have an opportunity to learn a
new skill, discover something about the place they live
in, and have fun. We also want to remind people that libraries
are welcoming community spaces offering free internet access
and information to support people's work, learning and leisure
while museums are inspirational community spaces that offer
visitors opportunities for recreation and learning.'
