with Diana Moore 


Ashmolean Gallery Lecturer Cassie O'Brien, had this to say:
"Your witty and perceptive responses through poetry and song were very engaging and fits in well with the Ashmolean's open door philosophy towards creativity in all its forms." 

Regular visitor Joanna said: "This is brilliant how you've put it all together”.

Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle
There is a jigsaw available of  the 'Objects in the Ashmolean' book cover; here it is in the Ashmolean Museum shop along with the book.  (it's also in Blackwell's - image below).
The jigsaw - made by Wentworth - has unusual shaped pieces and whimsy cut-outs which, in this particular jigsaw, relate to museum objects.  The edges are not what you'd expect either.  It really is a fun and interesting way to piece art and history together!
Ashmolean are currently running a promotion on the book and jigsaw, while stock lasts.

 An Art and Poetry Resource by Diana Moore

Claire Frampton says:  I work as a gallery attendant and my theatre in heritage project is about imagining theatre in the Ashmolean live events.  Reading this book made me feel enthused about different perspectives creative interpretation can bring. I liked the arrangement of photos, description and poetry. I liked the way the book presented new ways of thinking creatively about objects.
