Help with school work; let’s Explore and make Craft projects at home.

Whilst schools are closed Gill wanted to help our family members with their new huge task of teaching and entertaining their children at home. Then friends were interested and as the list grew, we thought to make these ideas available for everyone to use.

 

Gill really enjoyed making these topics for you and is already working on more ideas; so check back soon.

Click to Print - Auntie Gill Says Let's look at the farm

Auntie Gill Says

“Let’s look at the Farm with Auntie Gill - Discover and Make:”

A word search of different creatures you may find at a farm.
On paper, you can draw and colour each creature.
Using cardboard from empty packaging you can make your own farm
What do you think all the creatures eat?

“So let’s look at……… Arable farming”
“So let’s look at ………The Combine Harvester”
“So let’s look at……… Dairy farming”
“So let’s look at……… Apple farming”

We think the easiest way to use the material is to print it and use it on paper.

If you don’t have a printer we have created a copy of the material here on the screen.

Until we are able to once again get together safely, Gill is creating a new series of "How To .." flower arranging videos to entertain, to inspire, to educate and remind ourselves of the beauty of this art. These designs were created using available garden materials and everything we flower arrangers love to hoard, or using everyday objects in different, flower arranging, ways.

Refreshing changes to the way you can learn.

A typical week for Gill includes floral art demonstrations (often booked 2 to 3 years in advance) and flower arranging workshops around the country. Gill also provides existing students with 'One-to-One' lessons where they study either flower arranging or floristry.

For new students and workshops Gill maintains a flexibility in her busy schedule so that she can take on new teaching and demonstrating commitments. As a new student all you have to do is contact Gill to discuss what you wish to learn and with some dates that are suitable to you and in discussion arrive mutually agreeable dates. Gill can also walk you through the option on cost of tuition and materials that would be required.

One-to-One

Gill offers the flexibility of 'One-to-One' lessons so that students can learn what they need to learn to achieve their individual goals without making the time commitment expected of them if they were otherwise to attend traditional college courses. Gill lessons are all about concentrated practical learning  Student goals can, for example, be to achieve a higher practical grade in their floristry exams or to improve their creative skills when they design their next floral design.

Workshops

Workshops provided by Gill can be held at your local venue or run for your group of friends and often by businesses who wish to help their staff develop new skills; banqueting and hotel staff come to mind. There are just so many people that do not have the time to attend the traditional longer term college courses yet really love making floral designs and want to do something new, refreshingly different and one day workshops are a very good solution.

Timetable

You choose when; from available dates. The college's website depicts many different courses, that have been run previously, as a source of the variety of subjects that you can learn. Armed with an understanding that you can organise your next lesson as either a One-to-One, or as a Workshop, your next best step is to call Gill to discuss what you have done so far, what you would like to do next, where and when it could be taught. Gill in return can clarify any questions that you have,  offer available suitable dates and advise the likely cost of materials and cost of tuition.
