Outreach Schools Exhibition

Thursday, 20 June 2024 - Monday, 30 September 2024
The Art Workers' Guild

Our new exhibition has now been installed - a collection of work by students taking part in our Schools Project, which is part of the Guild's Outreach Programme.

Following the success of last year’s 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 and St Bede C of E Primary School in Winchester, in which six Guild members ran sessions for 28 children from Years 1 - 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 as follows:


Sir John Heron primary School

Julie Arkell - Papier Mache

Carolyn Gowdy - Passports for Citizens of the World

Paul Jakeman - Stone Carving


 St Bede C of E primary school  

Ruth Martin & Rachel Warr - Paper Puppets

Thuyha Nguyen - Jewellery Making


The children’s work will be exhibited at the Guild in the Master’s Room from now until the end of September, and the school children made a trip to Guild on Monday 8 July to see the exhibition and take part in a workshop together.
