Art in schools

Silk Painting Ursula Hurst

Workshops - Ursula will work with you to plan a project that will be fun, engaging and educational using her experience as a primary school teacher to enhance the Creative Curriculum. A project can involve children in all aspects of designing and creating either a permanent piece to hang in school or individual works of art. Workshops start at £250 (inc materials) for a full day working with individual groups or whole school. Mosaic and living willow workshops can be a little more due to the higher cost of materials.

PPA cover - Ursula's up to date primary experience means she can deliver all elements of the Art and Design curriculum as PPA cover. Please contact for further information.

Arts Award - Discover and Explore can be delivered as part of a larger scale project. Please see Arts Award website for more details of this fantastic scheme that recognises children's achievements with a Trinity College certificate


Wet Felt making workshops can be used to teach textiles in the curriculum. Large, permanent wall hangings or small decorative individual pieces can be created using warm soapy water and lots of friction. This fascinating ancient craft can be taught from Reception to adults. Whether creating a simple flat felt square for the first time or 3D sculptures felting always leaves you wanting to do more.

A great textile workshop, silk painting is a calm and remarkably satisfying activity. The children's initial sketches are collated and drawn with Gutta Outliner by Ursula onto beautiful fine silk before the workshop. On the day children are taught how to paint with special silk paints creating a large wall or window hanging .

Fancy something a little retro? Children love this colourful yet simple process which can be enjoyed from toddler to adult. Once the beautiful fabric is created it can be used for bunting, play/reading tents, t shirts, flags etc.
