Create a piece of stained glass in a workshop inspired by the history of emotions in nursing.

About this Event

This event is for nurses, midwives and care workers only.

Join us to explore which emotions have been linked with nursing over the last 100 years, and how emotions might be represented in nursing care today.

Set within the Watts Gallery Artist's Village, this day-long workshop led by Rachel Mulligan will include a tour of the site and an introduction to the works of the late-19th century artists George and Mary Watts, with workshops at the Foyle Pottery Studio.

During the practical workshop you will be introduced to some of the tools, materials and techniques that make up the stained glass process. An introduction to stained glass engraving and painting techniques will be inspired by historic images of nursing.

The artworks produced in the workshop will form part of a new exhibition, launching in January 2020 at the Royal College of Nursing. The RCN is working with researchers from Queen Mary Centre for the History of the Emotions on a Wellcome Trust funded project to explore emotions and healthcare from the Victorian era to the present day.

There are also workshops taking place in Sunderland on 18 June and Ely on 8 July.
