Craft teachers and maker educators are invited to join the Crafts Council's programme of CPD workshops as part of Craft School: Yinka's Challenge.
This online workshop will take place on 3 November from 3.30-5pm. Join the Crafts Council's education manager Rebecca Goozee for an online discussion on delivering Artsmark through craft and explore practical 'Make First' approaches to classroom delivery.
We will also be joined by embroidery artist Woo Jin Joo, recent graduate from the Royal College of Art and winner of this year's Janome Fine Art Textiles award. Woo Jin Juu will be joining us o to deliver a practical hands-on session exploring using embroidery to generate and explore ideas and narratives.
As an Artsmark Partner, the Crafts Council supports settings working towards Artsmark, as well as those that currently hold Artsmark status. They believe craft and making should play a central role in every child's creative education and they offer support, guidance, and practical resources to help schools make this a reality.
We are offering this event as part of our specialist CPD programme for the national school's competition Craft School: Yinka's Challenge. The challenge has been designed in collaboration with craft superstar Yinka Ilori and will focus on three vital themes; Play, Storytelling and Empowerment. This is an open event that is suitable for all craft teachers and maker educators working with Key Stages 1-4.
