A free CPD session for Cambridgeshire based primary school teachers, across the key stages, and art coordinators ~ inspired by the plants and animals of Lost Words (by Robert Macfarlane & Jackie Morris)
This Meet and Make session is part of the Brilliant Makers initiative, by AccessArt, to promote and support making in local, Cambridge/shire primary schools.
This will be an informal and fun, hands-on making session and is aimed at teachers with an interest in making ~ including sculpture, DT, craft and 3D modelling.
Teachers will have a chance to find out more about local CPD offers for creative development and a chance to meet like minded teachers and colleagues from local organisations.
Each school can collect their free copy of The Lost Words book, as part of the CCI campaign to get copies of this book in every primary school in the County.
