This beautiful felt flower meadow was created by the children of St James Primary, Gaunts Common, Wimborne. Stewarts Garden Centre funded both the materials and the workshop artist facilitator, Nina Squire, as part of their art education program, Little Green Fingers, which aims to educate children in the benefit of encouraging wildlife and improve our environment through growing. The finished felt panel has been donated to Walford Mill Craft Centre to raise valuable funds for their new building project. It will auctioned at the 'Silver' exhibition from June 25th- July 31st, please visit www.walfordmillcrafts.co.uk for more information
Stewarts have generously sponsored this next set of workshops by increasing the arts budget for Nina and local schools to develop a series of art projects. Nina has been involved in running Art Weeks for schools for 8 years and during this time has designed projects to work alongside existing projects, the International Primary Curriculum and projects that build on cross curricular links. This has included supporting Learning Outside the Classroom and the Creative Curriculum as well as enabling Healthy Schools’ outcomes and Enjoy and Achieve.
