Saturday 24 February 2018|10am-4pm Tutor: Martin Crowther | Canterbury campus | £42 Research, including by Canterbury Christ Church University, has highlighted the value of engagement with heritage collections, in raising attainment and promoting health and wellbeing. Discover the power of objects as a stimulus for learning, creativity and enjoyment in this hands-on, multi-sensory workshop using real and replica artefacts from Canterbury and the wider world. Participants will develop object handling and investigation skills, discover how to choose suitable artefacts and themes, and discuss how to deliver stimulating, creative, participative activities with a wide range of audiences – from schoolchildren and university students, to adults, older people and people with disabilities. We will also explore how objects can be used creatively across subjects including history, art, literacy and science, and as a stimulus for art, storytelling, role play and creative writing. No prior knowledge is required. Suitable for all, but especially for teachers, community group leaders and arts practitioners looking to develop their knowledge, skills and creativity in this area.
