delivered by established artists and art professionals Sara and Hanna Holmes, working with nature, sustainable materials, recycling and the environment.

As well as public projects and private commissions Sara has worked extensively in schools, colleges, and community projects across several counties. As a tool for educating people she believes all learning can be embedded into sensory, creative actions. By using natural and sustainable materials as a medium she is certain that environmental awareness can be taught  through the tactile and tangible involvement with them.

Hanna is Sara’s eldest daughter and is also a creative practitioner. With a passion for craft and upcycling she has begun to take willow in a new direction for Artfull. Hanna has travelled extensively and volunteered in schools around Thailand where she found craft based lessons and a creative approach to be a helpful teaching aid.

With a very gentle approach Hanna has worked with children with special educational needs and  co-ordinated many craft and festival workshops with children and adults of all ages and abilities.

With many years experience teaching, at all the different stages of development, our carefully designed workshops can be tailored to your requirements.

We can creatively link and adapt our workshops to the National Curriculum and the Key Stages. Embedding key skills at every opportunity we can also extend beyond Key Stage 4 into A Level and Further Education where larger scale 3D experimentation and sculptural mediums are often a requirement.

Our workshops, at all levels, have delivered some impressive results.

Sara also has a lot of experience working with SEND students. With skill and ingenuity she has engineered several workshops requiring differential considerations, to be inclusive and achieve outcomes, for students with complex needs.

“Sara is marvellous. Everyone in the school was hugely impressed and interested. It was a very special week for us. Senior Management here has said that they are very keen to build on this experience by developing more sculpture work with Sara and the boys, to be displayed outside the school entrance.” 
Jenny, Art Co-ordinator, Forest School, Horsham
