We are very pleased to announce our Education Pack, a 32page booklet and accompanying DVD with print masters of all the worksheets and two videos including Mary demonstrating her free hand knotwork.
Mary writes "Over the years I have been delighted to share some of my techniques and stories with children and adults visiting the Island, this book and accompanying DVD could support a visit to the Island or be used as a springboard into project work. Aspects of this Pack will feed into the National Curriculum for Art, History and Religious Studies.
In this collection we offer videos and worksheets covering how to draw the freehand knotwork style that I use and also how to make Brigid Crosses out of paper straws. We have also included six colouring-in images, a simple freehand knot and a Brigid cross image. We have also included background information to help put my work into context."
