Yesterday we welcomed a school group who travelled all the way from Fraserburgh to see us. P6/7 from Strichen Primary School came to the University Library to find out more about the Jacobites, who they are studying for their class project.
The pupils explored our current exhibition “Rebels with a Cause” looking for examples of Jacobite symbolism, and then it was all hands to crafting as they made white cockades and Highland targes!
You can find full instructions on how to make a white cockade in our blog.
If you would like to bring your class to do a Jacobites workshop, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01224 273047 or 01224 273048.
