Exhibition: Outreach Schools Project 2023

Thursday, 22 June 2023 - Friday, 07 July 2023
Master's Room, The Art Workers' Guild


Following the success of last years pilot Schools project, over recent months the Outreach committee has been running a second Schools project at the Sir John Heron’s Primary School in Newham, in which three Guild members ran sessions for children from Years 4 and 6 teaching them craft. The aims were to help the children develop their motor skills, introduce them and their families to the idea that careers in the arts are viable options for their futures, and, through the activity of making, help with their general social and emotional development.

Our teachers were Julie Arkell (papier mache), Paul Jakeman (stone carving) and Bobbie Kociejowski (weaving). The scheme was managed on behalf of the Outreach Committee by Sonia Tuttiett and Jeremy Nichols.

The children’s work will be exhibited at the Guild in the Master’s Room from Thursday 22 June – Friday 7 July and the school children will be making a trip to see the exhibition.

The exhibition will be available to view at the Guild meetings on Thursday 22 June, and Thursday 6 July. Other times by appointment. please email Leigh
