Launching the project

We are delighted to be working with Pippa and Holly at Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life and Rachael and Peta at Knightshayes Court. The Tiverton projectis called ‘Doing Our Bit’ as we will be exploring the war effort at home – factory workers at Heathcoat and women who stepped up as nurses at Knightshayes Court.

Young people from Tiverton Highschool and Petroc will engage with local source material including the log book from Heathcoat and a scrap book put together by Nurse ? at Knightshayes. Visual artists, Jane Churchill, Lucy Jackson, Jon Lincoln-Gordon and Trish Mohan will lead workshops in animation, print and drawing. Some of the artwork created will be shown within the planned exhibitions at Knightshayes and the Museum from the Summer of 2015. During February and May half term 2015 there will be drop in workshops for families to take part in.
