Referencing JW Anderson’s collection and the art works in our exhibition Disobedient Bodies, JW Anderson curates The Hepworth Wakefield, this creative writing workshop focuses on creating original characters, exploring the ways in which people form and represent identities and values through their clothing.
Using different techniques, prompts and props inspired by the exhibition, you will take part in a range of writing exercises led by writer and performer Becky Cherriman. Through the workshop you will create your own original characters and reflect on themes of gender and rebellion.
