We had a really exciting experience which transformed the learning in Year 5 into an immersive experience that hit all the senses: - from food tasting to music, to drama and storytelling, from DT to art. The activities were so well prepared and the delivery by the facilitators was exceptional. Most importantly of all, it brought fun and creativity to learning!

How it works
All our primary workshops are suitable for any Key Stage. They are also suitable for Special Needs Schools and are easily adaptable to suit the children’s abilities. Our workshops are delivered throughout the North East and they can be tailored to fit with almost any theme. The workshops can be tailor-made to suit your individual school requirements.
Our workshops are facilitated by creative mentors with a vast range of creative, design and digital expertise. Their knowledge and professionalism are paramount. This will be evident throughout your workshop.
Having TICE in to do the “horticulture and biodiversity” workshop with year 2 has been amazing. Bringing a topic of “plants” to the children through the media of music and art was so worthwhile and the rich learning that occurred in the lessons was fantastic. The lessons were perfectly pitched, fast-paced and engaging for all pupils...and staff. The national curriculum links to science were evident but it was done in a fun, interactive, inclusive and memorable way.

How do we book a workshop?
How do we decide what workshop will work best for our school?
From your point of contact with us, right through to the delivery of your workshop and beyond, we are on hand to offer you guidance and advice. Feel free to discuss your requirements with us, topics you would like us to cover, what creative disciplines you would like to experience and we will work with you to tailor your workshop. We also have a long list of workshops provided in other schools for you to browse through.
What creative disciplines and topics are on offer?
We have mentors that can facilitate any topic for example; the Victorians, India, biodiversity, horticulture, materials and their properties, and much more, simply just let us know what topic you would like us to introduce or enhance within the school. You can then select what creative disciplines you would like us to use to present the workshop, for example through music, textiles, creative writing, illustration, photography, animation, fashion, software or a mix of a few.
In addition, workshops have a clear focus on the topic chosen but as facilitated by creative professionals we also have an emphasis on creative, digital and design careers which can also enhance your careers provision within the school. Please let us know if you are seeking to meet any Career Guidance Benchmarks as we can certainly work with you to provide this.
Charlotte was truly exceptional. 14 teachers went away inspired, excited and full of creative ideas. It was a real pleasure to have her here. Thank you for organising for her to come. It really was one of the best workshops we have had here for a while. I’m glad Charlotte enjoyed her visit to our school and it’s been wonderful finding out a little about what you do through her. It does seem crazy that I could find nothing which fitted the bill any closer to home but she proved your enterprise is a real gem. I’m extremely glad I came across you and am sure the surrounding area appreciate having you. I’m very jealous!
