During the First World War, women (and men) at home knitted items for men at the front and in hospital. Today we are knitting and crocheting flowers for our community artwork hanging and items to send to charities supporting people affected by war. It doesn’t matter if you can only do a couple of rows, and experienced knitters will be on hand to help. Come and join a drop-in session between 2.15 and 3.30 in the Picture Galleries.
People of all ages can have a go at creating block patterns in this printing workshop led by the education team. All materials will be provided.
Join us for a display of WW1 related embroidered material from the Embroiderers’ Guild, which is in addition to those items currently on display in our ‘To Serve King and Country’ exhibition.
Join the volunteers and staff who’ve worked with the community on the WW1 project as it draws to a close. This is a chance to see the exhibition and review the work with coffee, tea and biscuits from 10.00.
The legacies of war and its impact on building post conflict societies will be reflected on during talks by Professor Charlotte Alston on the Paris Peace Conference 1919, Dr Daniel Laqua on campaigns to transform international life and Dr Andre Keil on the birth of the German republic in 1918/19. Booking is advisable.
