About the "Between the Lines" blog

Our latest exhibition "Between the Lines" reflects our response to the commemoration of the 1914-18 conflict.

This blog will focus on stories behind the work by the E.A.S.T artists as well as looking at other artistic and cultural commemorations around the UK that relate to WWI.

Two personal stories

Two EAST members are using their own family histories for the basis of their work.

Julie Topsfield’s begins with the story of her grandfather, Leonard Delf. Born in 1881, he spent the first seventeen years of his life in Norfolk before joining the army and beginning an adventure that took him to places as far afield as Africa, India and Afghanistan, before returning to Europe and the battlefields of France.

Lorna Rand has family from both sides of the conflict so her quilt not only tells the story of a war from both sides of the conflict, but also how tells how people who might have once been considered to be on opposing sides one hundred years ago are now brought together through love and marriage.
