In this day workshop, Susan Barker will lead the group through the challenges of conveying works of art in prose. Focusing on depictions of visual art and artists in literature, the group will consider literary texts in which works of art are evocatively conveyed, or in which art becomes a prism through which the historical, political and social context of the day is refracted. Works covered include Siri Hustvedt's The Blazing World, Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood, and Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. Following these discussions, participants will work to produce individual stories about an artwork chosen by Susan. This is sure to be a thought-provoking, inspirational day.
Tickets are priced at £35 for the day which includes lunch and tea / coffee.
