I will be leading a walk | talk around Tania Kovat’s HABITAT, in City Road Basin at 11am on Saturday 17th September, as part of London’s Open House weekend.
HABITAT has been designed for the watery haven of City Road Basin. Constructed from a floating pontoon, it consists of planted trays and a damp water meadow of increasingly rare local aquatic plants. The island garden includes several sculptural nests inspired by local birds such as moorhens, herons and swans.
I will read from my own work, which responds to HABITAT as a structure, and to associated themes of birds, nests, and home. I will also be looking for ideas and inspiration from participants, for new writing to be shared on the Word Garden blog.
Meet at 11am in City Road Basin, by the steps leading down from City Road.
