About the twilight

A chance to learn more about the approach taken by Barncroft Primary School during a new pilot project – Learning Through Craft and how they worked with professional gilder, Richard Walker.   Learn more about how children got involved and what they learnt.  Find out about Artsmark from Lorraine Cheshire, Education Development Manager, Artswork and about Arts Award from Lynne Dick, Director at Making Space.

Learning Through Craft Took place in 2017/18 and aimed to ignite teachers’ interest in and understanding of the value of craft in children’s creative, cultural and intellectual development. It aimed to inspire teachers and craft artists to exchange knowledge and skills; become advocates for craft in education; making craft accessible to and understood by young children.

Making Space is a craft centre based in the heart of Leigh Park, specialising in community and schools engagement projects which offer the highest quality experiences led by designer-crafts professionals.
