Reforming Anatomy is a one-day event, organised jointly with Reforming Anatomy, which examines the human body and how surgical and contemporary artistic disciplines intertwine to inspire creativity in medical practice.

Through a dynamic programme of keynote talks, workshops and performances, we’ll take a look at how to inspire creativity in surgical practice, encourage multidisciplinary collaboration and reinstate the importance of anatomical study to contemporary art practices.

There will be three workshops you can take part in:

1. Embroidery — sew into a skin-like latex material and learn the swing catch stitch, similar to crochet. The technique is used to seal a hole in the latex, creating a parallel to how sutures are used to seal a wound.

2. Suturing — Qualified surgeons will be teaching basic suturing techniques including specific knots.

3. Life drawing — Drawers will be encouraged to forget previous knowledge of anatomy while anatomical illustrations inspire the poses of two life models during this session.

RSM members can attend from £50 and non-members from £60.
Only registered users may comment.
