Stamps are little windows into the history of the World. Their designs tell stories to support teaching across the curriculum. From soldiers to suffragettes and rockets to runners, stamps commemorate the sacrifices made by people fighting for their beliefs. Stamps celebrate human achievements and the incredible inventions that changed the way we live today.

Workshops are delivered by Erene Grieve, a retired teacher with a passion for stamp collecting.
