The Power of Craft!

Back in September the Crafts Council invited Art and Energy director Jenny to speak at an online event titled ‘The Future of Craft Education’. All of the days inspirational speakers are available to watch on the Crafts Council’s Vimeo account.

Jenny spoke during the final session of the day which focused on the potential for craft as a cross curricular bridge. This is something that many in the Art and Energy Collective have experienced outside of a traditional school setting; with creative members discovering a new interest in the science and engineering behind solar, whilst those with a more technical background have experienced the joy of getting creative,

In April 2020 Jenny was due to go into two secondary schools in Cornwall to run solar artwork making workshops… these workshops have now been postponed to March 2021 due to Covid.
