Workshop artist for Heritage Open Days


Workshop artist Fiona Edwards has been confirmed to run a three hour creative drop in session at our free Heritage Open Days event at Fabrica gallery on Thursday 10th September 1-4pm.

Come and make a keepsake reminiscent of the love tokens and photo memorabilia of those leaving their loved ones during WW1.

A collage based workshop incorporating glue, fabric, sewing. The session will involve making folded paper frames that can be decorated and have participants’ own photos put in, or other images historically related.

Workshop participants can take their tokens home. There is a wonderful history of heart shaped love tokens constructed from textiles, medals, army badges, hankies and more from the First World War.
