Special Schools

 

The Makery

The Makery is a shop established by Greenacre Special School for students to create and sell their own handmade arts and crafts products. We have delivered craft workshops for the students, these have included upscaling furniture and making products such as Bath salts, cushion covers, photo frames, keyrings and canvas bags to sell in the shop.

 

Bracken Hill School

The first part of this project was a series of workshops for all year groups at Bracken Hill Special School exploring the theme of carnival. The second part was a performance at Rufford Park, Nottingham where a group of students shared their work alongside many other schools in a celebration event.

The aim of the project was to promote and celebrate dance within the school, it also promoted an inclusive way of working by offering all students the chance to participate. The performance aspect introduced new approaches and built the confidence and self-esteem of the participants. Teachers also got the opportunity to develop their creative and performance skills gaining confidence to utilise dance in the wider curriculum.
