As a final project to mark the 100th aniversay of the 1918 Armistice we are launching a craft project to remember the 15500+ people who died as a result of WW1 and are listed on the county’s war memorials.
Between now and September 2018 we would like the people of Norfolk to help us make these poppies so that they can be displayed together in October 2018 in Norwich then split into smaller displays which are housed in the county’s libraries for November 11th 2018.
The poppies can be made from any material you like, all we ask is that they be no bigger than 4″ x 4″ (10cm x 10cm) below are several patterns for flowers made in a variety of materials which you are welcome to use but these don’t have to be used if you have creative ideas of your own.
When you have finished your poppies it would be great if you could send them to Sarah Salmon at the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library – if you are nearby please just drop then in to the library but if you are further afield then please pop them into your local branch library and they will make sure they are passed on.
