The format for this day is a mix of presentations and workshop sessions focusing on studio learning, the pedagogy of learning.

The value of contemporary crafts in education, oral history, collaboration and creativity identity. This day is of particular interest for teachers, educators, makers considering teaching as part of their practice and craft professionals.

Session 1  - Skills in the Making

Through a practical workshop, presentation and discussion this session will explore the impact of making and craft practice in schools and will also give an insight into current government policy for teacher education.  Delivered by Lucy Brown Skills in the Making maker, NSEAD General Secretary Lesley Butterworth and Skills in the Making Programme Manager, Penny Jones.

Session 2 - Informal Learning

Informal learning is very wide ranging, it includes children to adult and often for mixed abilities through courses, workshops, residencies and gallery based work. Why lead a workshop? Why have a professional maker?  What is the role of the maker? What motivates learners?

These are just some of the questions we hope this workshop will help you to understand, along with also developing your craft. Led by Lynne Dick, Director, Making Space and Jane Tadrist, Jeweller, Silversmith and Communit Artist
