At the end of the fifteenth century Leonardo da Vinci was collaborating with anatomist Marcantonio della Torre and dissected thirty corpses, producing beautiful drawings of what he saw. This two week course with Human Remains Conservator Cat Irving will look at the history of interactions between anatomists and artists, and the way that contributed to the development of our understanding of the human body.

This is a 2 week online course held via Zoom on Wed 18th and Wed 25th November. One ticket admits buyers to both weeks of the course. Individual weeks not sold separately. These tickets will admit the attendee to the Wednesday evening classes.

Week 1: Wednesday the 18th November, 7pm-8:30pm (approx).

Week 2: Wednesday the 25th November, 7pm-8:30pm (approx).

We will email attendees with the Zoom meeting code by 3pm the day before the first class. If you have not received your login details by this time please check your spam mail.

We will record each session and send them out to all attendees for anyone who cannot make a live session or for those who would like to watch again. These recordings will be available for 1 week.

Age 16+
