To commemorate the end of WW1, local artist Suzie Gutteridge and Salisbury Cathedral have secured funding through the Heritage Lottery Fund to bring the Binding the Past to the Present Through Remembrance Exhibition to the Cathedral.
Suzie has been working with different communities, over the past few months and will continue over the summer, making poppies. The poppies are made from the same wool serge that was spun to make millions of puttees (lower leg wraps worn by World War I soldiers) by local firm Fox Brothers & Co Ltd, which is still trading.
Please view Suzie’s website for further details about the project and to follow her Blogs.
This exhibition will showcase Wiltshire both as a military county and as a wool producer.
Free, included in your donation to the Cathedral.
