I know you are very busy supporting your principals, teachers and by extension parents and students at the moment. I wanted to highlight the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland’s new initiative in response to our current situation called Get Ireland Making
Supported by Creative Ireland and Healthy Ireland it aims to share the skills of our talented craftspeople and designers a lot of whom work on CRAFTed with communities across Ireland. It is an ideal resource for teachers and parents alike. There will be weekly updates about live workshops and video tutorials all with an emphasis on making with materials we have at home or that are easily accessible.
Working together with our partners across Government and with RTÉ and other cultural organisations, our ambition is to engage the public and the design and craft community in activities designed to support wellbeing and build resilience during a very challenging time for our country.
Please add this link to the list of resources you have for principals, teachers and parents home schooling to support them.
Live workshops will be announced on social media platforms FB, Twitter and Instagram @DCCIreland
I would also recommend sharing
Please get in touch if we can recommend any of our Education Panel at the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland in your area to support with online resources or classes for your teachers.
