Craft college uses WoW fibres to teach students
Westhope Craft College near Craven Arms has been using fibres purchased from World of Wool to help teach students at a special school a new craft.
Clare Linford, vice principal of the college visited Tettenhall Wood, a special school in Wolverhampton, to introduce students to a craft.
Over a two day visit a mixed group of students of all ages learnt the art of making and creating a felt wall hanging based on The Gruffalo.
"We have the teaching resources to be able to offer techniques in a wide range of craft work," said Westhope's manager Mike Mortimer.
Our teachers are willing to visit special schools to provide students with learning difficulties the opportunity to experience new skills.
We are keen to develop relationships with special schools such as Tettenhall Wood to help students who would benefit from that kind of stimulation," he added.
We are delighted that our fibres are helping introduce new crafts to students who will really benefit from it, and what a fantastic wall hanging they created!
