INSET Sessions at OHOS

Staff from St Martin's Primary School in Caversham spent a day at the studios. They got to grips with new techniques that will feed back into their teaching practice with help from artists Kate and Jon Lockhart.
As well as touring the studio and meeting artists at work, the teachers enjoyed hands on printmaking and feltmaking workshops, whilst discussing thematic approaches for the classroom such as 'Mantle of the Expert'. One member of staff commented that: "It was the best INSET that I have ever been on"
