100 Hearts War Stories

In 2018 we invited Guild members to take part in the commemoration of the ending of WW1 a 100 years before by producing one heart to remember a generation now lost to us. Each heart would be included in at least one exhibition and, ideally, the exhibition would be as near to their home location as possible. Over a period of seven months, the entire collection of over 650 Hearts, medals, and other textile pieces were seen by audiences from Aylesbury to London, Liverpool to Harrogate, and Norwich to Scotland.

We have hundreds of images of the hearts produced on our Pinterest for you to explore.
