Writing Workshops at Bushey Museum

St Hilda’s took over Bushey Museum for a day of writing workshops. Girls from Forms 3, 4, 5 and 6 were thrilled to spend an hour at Bushey Museum, taking part in fun activities and challenges to improve their writing skills.  Mrs Rosewall reported, “Girls in the Upper School enjoyed writing workshops at Bushey Museum on Wednesday, concentrating on the horse painting by local artist Lucy Kemp-Welch, who illustrated the first edition of Black Beauty. They focused on creating characters from a huge and dramatic painting in the gallery which depicted the launch of a lifeboat by a team of horses in a storm. The Call,  painted by Lucy Kemp-Welch in 1937, has been used for fundraising by the RNLI. There was some very powerful writing begun at the gallery and Bushey Museum were so impressed by our girls’ work that they would like to put up a display of some of the completed pieces after Easter.”
