Hands-on War Paint: Ribbons and medals

We’ll begin with a discussion about ribbons and medals in the War Paint exhibition, exploring their historical and political context, and introduce how they are designed and made. Then we’ll have a go at using some of the techniques, such as cutting and stitching, to create a medal ribbon inspired by those on display in the War Paint exhibition. All levels are welcome. Materials will be provided. The workshop runs from 7pm to 8.30pm.
