Contact us to arrange a personalised training session for your school. Training is interactive, with lots of practical ideas and advice to use in the classroom.

For a practical, hands-on session, we can visit your school.  All you need to do is pick the topics you would like to cover, finalise a date and select a full day, half day or twilight session.

Or if you prefer remote support, we  now offer a one hour staff training session via Zoom.

Here is the list of topics we cover:

  • Five Steps for a successful DT unit

  • Sketching techniques (includes advice on still life, landscapes and portrait drawing)

  • Painting (using watercolour, acrylic, mixing paints, applying different painting effects)

  • Working with clay

  • Textiles (weaving, embroidery, collage, batik, tie-dye)

  • Printing

  • Using sketchbooks

  • Studying artists and architects

  • Fun and engaging starter activities

  • Improving speaking and listening through art

  • Assessment

Or if you would like to update and improve your art curriculum, we can help you to create a bespoke art curriculum for your school.

Contact us now for more information.


Staff Wellbeing

We also offer staff meetings and Inset sessions focused on wellbeing where staff can sit back and relax and learn to weave with willow.  Everyone will make something to take home with them.
