Artist Clare Twomey invites visitors to the Museum to create a handwritten copy of Wuthering Heights. The original manuscript for Emily’s famous novel no longer survives, but in this new commission for the Brontë Parsonage Museum, over ten thousand visitors will each be invited to copy one sentence of the novel into a handmade book to be exhibited during 2018, Emily Brontë’s bicentenary year. Each participant will be gifted a pencil, commissioned by the artist, as a tool for further writing. Clare Twomey hopes that the act of sitting at a table in the house where Emily wrote her novel, and to hold a pen and write, will build understanding of Emily and her determination to create the one published work of her lifetime.
