Once again it was a very hot day and the fans were on full at Barts Pathology Museum during our second 3 hour ‘Drawing Parallels: artistic encounters with pathology’ workshop on 6th August. This particular workshop was aimed at midwives and nurses. Conversation was vibrant but there were also periods of intense concentrated silence as participants spent time engaging with prepared foetal and neonatal specimens from the collections. Many thoughts, suggestions and memories of experiences were sparked and discussion continued long after the workshop had officially ended.
Some things participants said:
“Drawing something is definitely a good way to ‘ be with ‘ something that you might not normally chose to be with or think about. It’s like a bridge between you and that something.”
“Each time we saw the samples I felt I saw something different in them. It was also good to be able to interact with the other participants.”
Thank you to everyone who participated.
There are still places on some workshops. Please see which one seems most relevant to you and email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place. (Please note, spaces are limited)
