A family workshop inspired by our exhibition, ‘The Christmas Truce 1914 – and beyond’. Using art as a way of responding to the experience of life in the trenches became very important to many soldiers. This workshop is an opportunity to take a closer look at different examples of art made in the trenches – from pencil sketches recording aspects of daily life to humorous cartoons. You will then have an oportunity to create your own piece of trench art to take home as well as contribute to a commemorative group installation that will continue to grow throughout the exhibition.
