Our creative writing participant, Katie Ireland, also took up the blog challenge and produced a blog inspired by museum items. She has published the piece on her own website Mála, which is a sustainable fashion brand that she founded with other creatives, as it tied in with the theme of sustainability in museum fashion collections. You can read it here.

This was written by a participant on our Creative Writing Programme. It was inspired by the above piece, click the image to view it in the NMNI online collection. Read other works from the programme here: Virtually (Re)writing history: A series from our online creative writing programme
