About Create your own embroidery peace handkerchief on Conscientious Objectors Memorial Day

Join us for this online workshop with Opposing War Memorial lead artist Kate Ive on 15 May. Create a peace handkerchief of your own design with Kate's help. She will give some background to the upcoming memorial to be installed in Princes Street Gardens and help you design your handkerchief. [the picture above is a handkerchief designed by a participant in a previous workshop with Kate]

Kate's final memorial design will be a bronze representation of the Davidia involucrata - or handkerchief tree. As part of the memorial's creation process, Kate is running embroidery workshops and some of the handkerchiefs created will inspire designs for the bronzed 'bracts' or flowers that will decorate the bronze tree and represent Conscientious Objectors and individuals and organisations that oppose war.

We hope you can join us for some embroidery and a chat on Conscientious Objectors' Memorial Day to find out the latest about the Opposing War Memorial project, and be a part of the creation process ahead of the memorial's installation.
