Culture Night: Writing Workshop @ The Museum of Style Icons

I'm facilitating a creative writing workshop at the Museum Of Style Icons on Culture Night, September 21st from 7 to 9pm. It should be fun, we'll be drawing inspiration from the clothes and artifacts on exhibition which include Marilyn Monroes pink pucci dress, her evening jacket from The Prince and The Showgirl, and her dotty umbrella in the cheesecake shot above.

There's also clothes worn by Liza Minelli (her Cabaret costume) Gloria Swanson, (Sunset Boulevard), Garbo, Betty Davis. Tippi Hedren, Michael Jackson and The Beatles. All you need is a notebook and pen and a willingness to write! Places are limited so book by contacting Kildare Arts Service at or 045-448328
