Saturday 12th January 2019 - History of the Clippy Mat
An excellent talk and demonstration by Jo Wilson on rag
mats, known locally as Clippy Mats, that were a common
sight in most working class homes in the North East until
the 20th century. Today the craft is being preserved by
local groups. After the talk and demonstration we were
able to have a go ourselves.
talk recounted from the German point of view the
major events from the
offensive in March, 1918 leading
up to the Armistice on November 11th.
The talk then
continued by examining some of the reactions of the
troops and their bitter return to a deeply
unstable and dangerous homeland.
A most informative and moving talk, thank you Ian.
