Curriculum based Workshops

This 'cardboard sushi' workshop was developed to fit in with the curriculum for a class of year 2's who had been looking at Japanese culture.

This workshop was devised as an extension task for year 2's to work together in groups to make very large recycled 'rubbish' flags. Covering the countries travelled between Great Britian and Japan.

I can develop workshops to fit alongside the school curriculum whether they are loosely based on my own art practice or are to be developed from scratch. Please see examples below.

I ran three children’s workshops for years 5 & 6 in two primary schools making recycled old style towns with watermills, windmills, churches, schools, market stalls and houses as part of a larger project with SAICA to mark the opening of their new paper mill.


We started by looking at the history of Partington up to modern day and the changes that have taken place.  The children used recycled materials to create different aspects of their town.

Watercolour workshops based on microscopic images of cross sections of various plant life.

Another or additional option is a workshop creating and  using simplified ink drawings of the microscopic images and enhancing them through photo maniulation using arious techniques, producig very different results to the paintings through the use of the same subject matter.
