Workshops

SCHOOLS

Tailored Yarn are keen to provide educational workshops in local schools using material to fit in with the ciriculum around the following topics:

Living with a disability

Why is Mental Health Important

Succeeding with Dyslexia

Fostering

Activities will be age appropriate and include story telling and fun fact finding,

Practical pencil and watercolor illustration workshops are also available as a series where skills are built on and developed each week.

Following a detailed step by step process, aimed at a range of abilities, she will guide the children to bring their stories to life with illustrations.

LIBRARIES AND BOOKSHOPS

Gillian attended a short course, run by local author Charles Lee, on how to write children’s stories. She will be available for book signings and story telling workshops in both libraries and bookshops. We are interested in supporting small independent bookshops as well as larger well known chains in the high street to encourage young children in reading and creative writing skills.

FREE WORKSHOPS IN HOSPICES

We will be fundraising in order to provide free workshops within hospices for families. These workshops will cover a range of activities as already mentioned to support families with life limiting conditions.
