Dress You Up, Zoom Workshop with Kate Copeland
Join us on Zoom on Saturday, March 9 from 10 am to noon eastern standard time, for a survey and discussion about fashion and its underlying subtexts and meanings that make their way into our poetry and stories.
Ekphrastic editor Kate Copeland will take us on a fashionable tour of art and clothing, with time to write our own artistic exploration of appearances. Weaving through personal and cultural meanings we attach to clothing, Kate will touch on poetry, research, linguistics, and Anne Sexton's iconic red reading dress.
Lorette will show us a brief survey of fashion in art history.
Virginia Woolf would sign off her invitation with "bring no clothes," but we invite you to dress up or bring your favourite garment, to inspire your own poem or story.
