The Craft Corner Ethos
We will cover a range of craft projects over the course of the term. Our aim is that your child comes away from each class having gained a practical craft skill while at the same time having fun! The projects will be organised so that the skills they learn one week will be used in future classes. This will reinforce the learning while giving your child a great sense of achievement at using their own knowledge to complete the task.
The students will be given projects that they can expand on in their own time therefore developing and strengthening their ability for independent learning and play.
We believe that teaching children craft and the nurturing their creativity from a young age greatly helps them in later life. It develops an ability to problem solve and to think outside the box. Also with all our craft projects we are using everyday materials and turning them into amazing creations. If you can imagine it we can teach you how to make it.
