Hi, I'm Christine, an experienced primary school teacher and artist, and now I run the Art-Room.   The Art-Room is a resource to engage children in artistic skills and produce work which will brighten up your school. I run a range of different workshops, including creating recycled paper, felt making, willow weaving and  leading staff training sessions.   So far, we have visited infant, junior and special schools all over the country.  We would love to bring our art projects to your school, so please, get in touch.

Covid-19

The Art-Room is still open for business and we endeavour to adapt our workshops to make them safe during these difficult times.  Staff training and inset sessions can take place safely and in accordance with social distancing guidelines, so please get in touch to book these.   Pupil workshops will be assessed on a case-by-case basis so please do contact us.  If, after working together to produce safety measures tailored to your school, changes to the current situation occur, the workshop can be cancelled with no cost incurred.

 

The children accessed the activity in their own way, many observed the activity due to their physical disabilities. However, they still showed interest and enjoyment while making the leaves and the children have been empowered that they contributed to the making of the tree in the school’s grounds.

Paper Making Workshop

In our paper making workshop, the children will learn where paper comes from, the impact of deforestation and the importance of recycling paper. 

Wet Felting Workshop

In our wet felting workshop the children will use wool to create a felted picture.  They will learn how to build up layers to create a background and then design a picture to go on the surface. 

Willow Weaving Workshop

Willow weaving is a fantastic workshop and is a great way of producing art which can be displayed outside.

Everything was explained in an interesting way and at an appropriate level. The children set to work confidently, and with enthusiasm. It wasn't long before they  were independent paper-makers!
