Filigree Notes and tips from workshop – 16 April


The writing that poets produced in our April workshop inspired and excited me enough to share the workshop ideas that they bounced off with you!

We looked at 3 filigree from 3 angles

1 Filigree as image

Take a look at some of our images here (the link is a pdf to the images we looked at)

filigree images

we looked, then we looked again, then went deeper and looked again……

Other people took inspiration from images they were wearing, had on their body, from holiday photos, paintings on the wall of the venue…

2 Filigree as character

  • as a ‘name’
  • as a person
  • as a street

From all 3 angles, we considered the only hint that editor Nii Parkes has given

filigree was not prescriptive per se, more of a mindset that encourages subtlety and subterfuge in the delivery of punches.

A bit of a filigree – ic answer in itself!

If you want to write something that is  ‘obvious’ about Filigree’ you need to employ your skills of imagination and senses – to the max! There will be room for varied styles and ideas but what Nii will be looking for even more is how people have played with the imagery in a less obvious way although don’t be clever for the sake of being clever  – essentially we still want good poetry.


So whatever you see in one of the images on Pinterest or attaced, take a second then a third look….and think about the story behind an image too…..


3 – Filigree turned on its head and inside out. (we didn’t have time to do much with this one) But don’t forget, you can also make the page part of your poem – How do you want your filigree poem to look on the page?


But this HAS to be the favourite! Not from the workshop but from  Peepal Tree Publisher,  Jeremy Poynting he remembers, recalls the ‘Basil the Rat’ story from Fawlty Towers when Manuel described his rat as a ‘filigree Siberian Hamster’!! Im not commenting, I’m just sharing!

Looking forward to reading your poems! DEADLINE 30TH APRIL 2016! (Yes, one minute to midnight is ok!)
