From scent-based storytelling, to turning a sound into a smell, or a scent back into song lyrics, you’ll get to play with lots of different ideas to use in your work. Come prepared to sniff lots of interesting and unusual aromas.Lizzie Ostrom is a lifelong scent fan, who in 2010 (under the name Odette Toilette) began hosting events for people to play with their sense of smell, from sniffable history tours to recreations of ancient aromatic rituals, Japanese incense ceremonies and scent speakeasies uncovering illicit perfumes. She’s worked with many museums, galleries and brands including the V&A, The National Gallery, The Royal Observatory Greenwich and The British Museum. In 2015 she was on the team creating Tate Sensorium from creative studio Flying Object, which invited visitors to experience artworks with all their senses. Her first book,Perfume: A Century of Scents, is out now with Hutchinson.
