My name is Jane Round and I work creatively with groups of people, from young children to the elderly, on long term projects or one day events. The materials and methods I use vary from textiles and printing to paper and bamboo. Projects can lead to finished collective and individual pieces or simply be about the creative discovery and exploration.
I have 20 years experience of devising and delivery engaging training workshops that look at encouraging creativity, either through practical demonstrations and/or creative thinking and planning.
I trained in Mathilde Joubert‘s creative planning methods for primary schools; I am able to guide, inspire and encourage primary school staff as they plan a more creative approach to the curriculum. The methods can lead to more independent learning and thinking in children.
I can offer something tailor made to your staff, community group or special event.
Examples of work. Training for play-scheme staff; activities for play days and festivals; play training for lunchtime supervisors; cooperative games days; banner making; batik; silk screen T-shirt printing; puppet making; bamboo sculptures; using arts for consultation; speaking at conferences.
