Running until April 2018
Fairfield Heritage Centre, based in Govan, Glasgow, has recently launched ‘River at War’, an exhibition commemorating the outstanding contribution made by Clydeside industry to World War One.
To coincide with the exhibition, the centre is also running an educational workshop aimed at secondary schools pupils at National 4, National 5 and Higher Level. The free session, which is run exclusively to one school group at a time, can be booked for Friday mornings or afternoons, with a maximum capacity of 35 students. The workshop focuses on the vital contribution of the Clydeside industries throughout the war effort, examining variation in output levels, diversification of production and the changing composition of the workforce.
