Mud & Memorials
15th June 2018 - 31st January 2019
The Great War ended one hundred years ago, and soon War Memorials were built in all of the local villages to commemorate and remember those that did not return. One hundred years on the “Mud & Memorials” work-shops organised by the “Back to the Front” Project will create a modern War Memorials at Abbots Langley and Bedmond, made from over two hundred clay tiles individually crafted by students from local schools, and erected a century on, in 2018.
Each clay workshop will enable students to work with a material directly related to the conditions suffered by soldiers during the War. With every student producing unique work, it is hoped that this will be a reflection of the many, many individual stories of those who perished.
