World War 1 Workshops at Pershore Library: the artist’s view

Artist and illustrator, Sarah Millin, provided some fabulous art workshops for our Pershore Library event.

Sarah wrote about the experience on her blog:

‘I was delighted to be invited to run family learning workshops around the topic of World War 1.  Families had to imagine that their father had been away at war and was returning home for the first time in three years.   Families had to illustrate and create a menu, based on local foods and rations at the time.  Families drew onion soup, pigeon pie, rabbit pie, pork chops, carrots, potatoes, Pershore plum crumble, apple crumble, blancmange, water, apple juice and a small piece of chocolate if their father was lucky!’

Here’s a gallery of the fabulous collages created by children and families who came to the event:
