A few weeks ago I collaborated with Sarah Jane Lawton of Sharing the Making to design and deliver a collaborative Innovation workshop for the Fred Longworth's 'Nurture Group'. The project named 'The advantage of being me' for year 8 & 9 students, encouraged a discussion on future aims, hopes and dreams. In celebration of themselves the students learnt and developed new skills in creating prints and books. We had such positive sessions with each student fully engaged and growing in confidence throughout the day. We used a model of mentorship to ensure that everyone was given ample attention, understood what was being asked of them but were also challenged by each task. The feedback was wonderful!
I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to work with the Nurture Group, and with Sarah. Her vision and positivity are infectious.
