V&A Museum Creative Writing Resources



Creative Writing Resource


The links below give useful guidance on how to get detailed observations of an object and generate ideas for creative writing.  Qualities such as colour, shape, texture and materials are looked at first.  Similies and metaphors are then defined and the student encouraged to move from a physical to an abstract view of an object.

There are two PDF resources to download:

Simplifying an Object

Looking Intensely at an Object

Images of objects are provided on each sheet.  Alternatively, students can find other images at http://collections.vam.ac.uk/
