MAKE with the Knit Shop
MAKE with the Knit Shop is a two-year CLPL (Career Long Professional Learning) project designed to embed craft approaches in schools.
Together with partners Knit Shop and Dundee Creative Learning Network, the project will explore the value and potential of teaching craft across the curriculum and equip teachers with the skills, knowledge, confidence and experience, to provide quality education and impactful learning through the arts.
Working with six primary schools in Dundee (Ancrum Road, Claypotts Castle, Fintry, Rosebank, St Mary’s and Downfield) the project will introduce teachers and pupils in P5 and P6 to new craft-based approaches to developing numeracy skills using the Dundee Progression Pathways for Numeracy.
MAKE with the Knit Shop is a partnership between MAKE, Knit Shop and Dundee Creative Learning Network, led by Craft Scotland and Panel. It is funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Teacher Development Fund, with additional support from Creative Scotland as part of their targeted funding to strengthen the craft sector in Scotland.
MAKE with the Knit Shop has been developed within the framework of MAKE Learn, a project linked to the MAKE Manifesto, which sets out action points and recommendations that directly reflect the issues of makers living and working in Scotland.
