|One of the students from the school did a collage of various newspaper articles and letters we found in the archive and the museum. I made up a photoscreen from this and we used it as a cloth that draped from the ceiling into the suitcase.|
|We masked out areas of the main print and included images of some of the young men from St Ives who went to war|
|We used this as a base for other wonderful things made by the community for the show.|
|These included little stuffed hearts made by volunteers from the museum, from U3A, from Adult Learning Classes for adults with learning disabilities and from Claire's Creative Cabin. These replicated the pincushions made by invalided soldiers, using some of the images from the main panels as the focal picture on each heart. .|
And of course I couldn't have done this whole project without the wonderful Gilly Vose, assistant curator at the Norris museum and great collaborator!
|I know these pictures are a bit blurry - if you get the chance, come along and see it all for yourself!!! |
It's all part of a bigger exhibition at the
