MY ARTS AND CRAFTS SCRAPBOOK

An insight into my life as a hobby artist, sculptor and designer maker interested in using sustainable materials to create sculpture and jewellery.

WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE

FOR MY JEWELLERY- You will find links to my DROPBOX CATALOGUE and other WEB LINKS

FOR TEACHERS- You will find ideas for lessons, photographs of work and workshops.

Using this site is fairly straight forward but to make your search quicker visit RESOURCES CONTENTS to discover the heading of something you might want to view and download.

Then copy and paste this into the RESOURCES LIBRARY SEARCH.

Are you looking for my own free downloadable resources to help in your ART, GENERAL and D&T teaching?  I have uploaded over 70 teaching resources on the TES Resources website under my nom de plume BUBBLEGUM55 but many here are exclusive to this site. Find these in the RESOURCES LIBRARY using the method above.

Look for examples of my own demonstrations and artworks  in

DEMOS FROM THE CLASSROOM AND WORKSHOP and

MY OWN ARTWORK.

Look for photographs of students' work in SNAPSHOTS OF PUPILS' WORK

Find photographs from the AQA events in  WORKSHOPS  that took place in the autumn term 2011 and 12.

I hope this site will support any curiosity about ideas for the use of SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS in Design and Technology lessons and for pleasure.

I spent six years at the end of my career exploring COOPERATIVE LEARNING with colleagues in my department

If you are looking for ways to get students working look up

RESPECTFULLY TOGETHER

PROBLEM SOLVING or using

THINKING SKILLS I hope you will find my adaptations of Kagan Structures for use in the area helpful. These are illustrated in PLTS Tasks in Kagan Structures Many of these resources, including BLANK WORKSHEET TEMPLATES can be found and downloaded from the RESOURCES LIBRARY. View some of my inspiration in the photo gallery INSPIRATION

I find that by discussing ideas with others some of the best sparks of inspiration spring out and develop so don't be frightened to make comments or suggestions through the forum. I will be delighted to know who is finding benefit from this site so please email me about anything at all. I am keen that the resources built up over the years teaching should be available to those who are still working their way through their career.

Please feel free to REGISTER and sign the GUESTBOOK. I look forward to feedback but realise you are busy people.
