VISITORS to the Brontë Parsonage Museum will be invited to help create a handwritten copy of Wuthering Heights.

Ten thousand visitors to the Haworth museum this year will be invited to each copy one sentence of the novel into a handmade book.

The project is being led by artist, Clare Twomey, and will run from April 6 until the end of the year, with the new manuscript going on display at the museum in 2018, during Emily Brontë’s bicentenary year.

The original manuscript for Emily’s famous novel has not survived.

A museum spokesman said: “Each participant will be gifted a pen, created by the artist, as a tool for further writing. Clare Twomey hopes 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.”

Clare Twomey is a British artist and a research fellow at the University of Westminster, who works with clay in large-scale installations, sculpture and site-specific works. She has exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate, Crafts Council, the Eden Project and the Royal Academy of Arts.
