We were very fortunate that our application for the Artists in Primary Schools Scheme was successful. This scheme is supported by Tipperary County Council who provide funding to a professional artist of any discipline to work in a school for 50 hours on a project designed collaboratively between the school and the artist. The scheme provides opportunities for children to access and to engage with an artist and the language of creativity at an early age; and for schools and teachers to work collaboratively across curriculum areas. We were delighted to work with artist Katy Goodhue. The children worked with various fabrics and fibres under themes such as 'birds' and 'homes' and created some fabulous pieces, a sample of which you can see here.
