To coincide with our exhibition The Poppy: A Symbol of Remembrance, this workshop uses museum objects and our collection of badges and paraphernalia, from white to red, to explore and discuss the nature of war and remembrance with your class. Your day will also include a visit to our exhibition.
The exhibition's themes include:
Examine the history of the poppy and its emergence as a symbol of remembrance. Through a variety of objects, photographs and interviews, the exhibition explores the manufacture of poppies in Scotland, the charitable work of the poppy appeal and recent debates about what some regard as the politicisation of the poppy as a symbol.
