Who are we looking for?

Makers with knowledge in jewellery, textiles, costume, three-dimensional design and who work with digital technology are of particular interest for this project. Interested makers should clearly outline their approach, medium to be used, possible outputs and key learning objectives for the participants. We would be particularly keen on creative approaches for engaging students with the design process from concept through to production and innovative uses of digital technologies.   

Whilst experience of working with young people and adults with additional support needs is beneficial, we actively encourage applications from makers who have not undertaken this kind of activity before. If you have good communication skills and a commitment to equality and diversity then please do apply. If you have any questions or would to discuss the project then please contact Outreach & Engagement Officer Tanwen Llewelyn. ‚Äč

You may be invited for a further meeting or phone conversation to discuss the project in more detail.

Desirable specifications:

  • Experience of delivering workshops for a variety of groups and participants
  • An ability to work as part of a team and show individual initiative
  • Knowledge of contemporary craft and design
  • Knowledge of the issues that affect young people and adults with additional support needs
  • Flexibility and adaptability*
  • A commitment to equality and diversity
