This thematic approach incorporated critical discussion and hands on creative activities so that teachers could develop their own inquiry based projects back in the classroom.

The workshop supported the national curriculum in art and design. It was suitable for Key Stage 1 – 4 teachers and teaching assistants. 

‘I enjoyed discovering great practical ideas which I could take back to the classroom!’

‘The workshop has given me confidence to develop ideas.’
