Poetry on sweet (and other) wrappers, curated by Helena Nelson and Jenny Elliott

A WrapperRhyme is a spontaneous rhyming poem handwritten onto food wrapping. It all began the day Ted Hughes scribbled just such a piece onto a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer paper. Since then, thanks to social media, the idea has run riot. Here we display, in all shapes and sizes, many brands embellished by many hands, with an opportunity for visitors to write their own.

Come along and hear more about the WrapperRhymes project at our Meet the Artist event at 15:45 on Friday 6 March.
