DESIGN A MEDAL OR A CROWN TO COMMEMORATE HM QUEEN ELIZABETH II
This year, our late monarch HM Queen Elizabeth II will be commemorated at the North Yorkshire Remembrance Service at Ripon Cathedral. The Queen’s service during the Second World War and her involvement and commitment to our Serving personnel and families during her 70 years as Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces will be recognised.
Students are invited to design a medal and/or a crown as there will be displays of the artwork and designs at the Remembrance Service at Ripon Cathedral. If you’d like to be part of this, then please read the details below.
MEDALS: Design a medal to commemorate a relative who fought in the war or recognising a serving parent/family member. These will be pinned up on the large noticeboards at the front of Ripon Cathedral for all guests to see as they arrive for the service.
CROWNS: Be part of a larger project and contribute to design and make a large crown, or a piece of art depicting a crown, commemorating HM Queen Elizabeth II’s life and particularly her involvement with the Armed Forces. It would be great to see: Corgis, Paddington, reference to her time as a mechanic in WWII, anything relating to the Queen as Commander-in-Chief of the British Forces. These crowns will be displayed around the altar at the service in the Cathedral.
Templates for the medals can be collected from Mrs Farquhar in the library, or alternatively download one HERE.
Please leave your medal artwork and model crowns with Mrs Farquhar in the library by Friday, 14th October.
