We run workshops for kids
What started out as, Kin and Cloth doing one term, after Jasmine was asked to run a creative afterschool club at the local primary academy, guiding children from year groups reception to year four.
Each week Jasmine provided three sessions to help children, build on their mobility skills. These sessions help individuals to gain confidence in working with others (team building) and to enhance their own communication and active listening skills. We guide each child to build patience, individual decision-making, behavioural techniques and discipline for creative learning. The Creative Club enables children to gain new skills, have a sense of belonging and develop learning and coping strategies. The latter being a crucial life skill to navigate through challenges.
Our club sizes are small, so that we can give quality time to children and throughout the term, each child is guided to overcome doubts or personal blocks and will move on from the club understanding that there is no limit to their creativity. There are a high number of children who attended the club showing amazing potential to continue in the creative industry as adults.
Task set for children will always have the aim to gain basic knowledge for a forgotten life skill, helping them to develop better motor skills, a greater knowledge of how garments they wear are made all whilst having fun.
We have the ability to guide children into having a good understanding of stitching techniques and become individuals who will enjoy the creative arts and take joy in seeing their peers grow and develop alongside them.
We are working hard to bring this much loved club back where more children within the local area can access.
