Writer, Rebecca Solnit, says “Blue is the light that got lost…the texture of longing. Blue tints the next beyond.”

The philosopher, John Ruskin, said “Blue …is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight.”

The artist, Marc Chagall, used the colour blue to paint his dreams and Picasso’s ‘Blue Period’, lasted for four years.

Blue blood. Blueprint. Feeling blue. The blue hour. Blue-sky thinking, Mood indigo. Bowerbirds, Blue-footed Boobies, Cyanometers. Rhapsodies in blue. Azure. Cerulean. Novalis’s enigmatic Blaue Blume and the precious blue planet that we inhabit…

In this 6-week course with writer, Gaia Holmes, we will delve into the vast, rich, variegated worlds of the colour blue. We’ll look at blue in poetry, prose, art, psychology and folklore and use it as the inspiration for our own writing.

Booking advised.
