Welcome to Letters Trellis. Based on the idea of celebrating the art of correspondence, Letters Trellis is a project to encourage the writing of traditional letters. It recalls an experience in Grignan, France, where there is an annual festival to acknowledge the joy and connection possible through posted correspondence. Courtyard spaces offer table, chair and stationery for visitors to write a letter. At the end of each day, the envelopes are posted and mailed as a service from the community. Letter Trellis was formed to offer this same experience for visitors to Winchester community events, such as the Farmer’s Market. With funding from the Winchester Cultural Council (and Mass Cultural Council), Letters Trellis provides materials, space, and ideas to prompt the creation of handwritten messages from one to another.
Letters Trellis returns to the Winchester Farmers Market on September 30th, 2023. We continue to offer complimentary writing materials and encouragement to pen a letter to a loved one, acquaintance, or new friend. Our last market appearance will be October 28th, 2023.
We are looking for potential venues to offer our pop-up Letters Trellis writing table. This can be a great opportunity to encourage handwritten letters and relationships. We are open to discussing arrangements. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
