The Cathedra 900 project

As soon as I saw the powerful and dynamic artwork of Mark Ware, produced for his Cathedra 900 project displayed in the historic Exeter Cathedral, I realised inspiration was there for the taking. The imaginative, lively students on the workshop proved me right.

With the invaluable support of Literature Works which enabled me to hold the writing workshops, I watched the children create exciting characters, soak up the atmosphere and map out their original tales; they drew from the breathtaking sculptures, relics, light and sounds inside and outside Exeter Cathedral.

It is an experience that I, and I’m sure the children, felt privileged to be a part of and I’m looking forward to hearing their intriguing tales later in the year.
