CRAFTed Programme

A craft based  project for primary schools

The Crafts Council of Ireland, in partnership with the full-time Education Centres, was delighted to announce that the successful CRAFTed ‘Learning Skills for Life’ programme for primary schools would be available for a small number of primary schools in 2014.

Based on developing good collaborative practice between craftspeople and teachers, the Programme focuses on craft & design skills supporting integrated learning methodologies, with an emphasis on underpinning numeracy and literacy skills.

CRAFTed encourages excellence in the delivery of the Visual Arts (VA) curriculum and investigates how craft processes can contribute to learning in other subject areas such as Social, Environmental and Scientific Education (SESE) curriculum. Please visit www.learncraftdesign.com to learn more about the colourful and creative craft projects that took place in 128 schools around the county last year.

This was an exciting opportunity for both teachers and pupils to explore their creativity and learn new skills by working collaboratively with professional craftspeople.

2016/2017

The four schools displayed their CRAFTed project pieces at West Cork Education Centre on Tuesday May 23rd 2017.  The Craft Council of Ireland local co-ordinator, Liz Flatman facilitated a short session with the four participating teachers where they had an opportunity to share experiences and view work from other schools. This session ran from 5-5.30pm.

At 5.30pm, principals, parents, students, teachers and other members of the school community were invited to our CRAFTed Showcase event. Liz Flatman provided an overview of CRAFTed and the individual projects undertaken. Attendees then had an opportunity to view the four projects and to see their own school work on display. The showcase will closed at 7pm. Refreshments were provided.
