The Quest Gallery Haiku Sessions:















The Haiku Course at The Quest Gallery
Japan Times award-winning writer Alan Summers has joined with Quest Gallery to develop a unique Haiku poetry course. Each session will be developed in response to the changing exhibitions at Quest Gallery, providing a unique and inspiring environment for learning.

Over the course of 5 weeks, students will experience the fundamental principles that underpin haiku, and apply these to their own poetry that they will develop and refine throughout the course. 

This is a unique opportunity to learn about Japanese poetry, and contemporary art, in the beautiful setting of one of Bath's most prestigious art galleries.

The course includes an event with special guest speakers where students can showcase their own work. There is also the opportunity to contribute haiku to the exhibition catalogue, producing a creative legacy for for both participants and for the gallery.
