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.
