The Creative Dimension Trust commemorate Remembrance Day

Exhibition of The Creative Dimension Trust student work commemorating the one hundredth anniversary of the end of World War 1

The work of students of The Creative Dimension Trust featured prominently at historic Somerset House in London over Remembrance Weekend.

Overlooking the Thames, Somerset House was first built in the 16th Century as a grand residence before expanding to become great public offices.  It now offers a diverse and dynamic public arts and culture programme attracting three million visitors a year, and is home to a community of creative businesses, artists, and makers.

In commemoration of 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War, TCDT students designed and produced a beautiful tryptic in their summer 2018 workshops.   The tryptic is made up of seven Ancaster stone carvings of doves in flight, seven relief lime wood carvings of poppies, and seven Verre Églomisé caplain hearts symbolic of pin cushions made by recuperating soldiers.

The tryptic was displayed in Seamans’ Hall on 10 and 11 November.
