Creative Writing Workshop

With its distorted image of a skull across the foreground, 'The Ambassadors' is a painting that challenges perception. On this one-day writing course, led by award-winning poet Pascale Petit, participants will respond to works in the Strange Beauty: Masters of the German Renaissance exhibition.

You'll write poems that explore the darker and more disturbing aspects of life, as well as how to transform these through art. The day includes the opportunity to work in smaller groups with the tutors.
