Workshop 20

Richard Reid is hosting a shield-making workshops for young people, where participants get to design and paint their own shield. At this family friendly event, each participant will take home their own painted shield as a keepsake.

The designs on shields were very important to the knights who owned them, they reflected their loves and fears, things to protect themselves and to frighten their enemies.

Shield painting is a great fun activity giving children a chance to explore the things that are important to them. What would you put on your shield?
