CraftED is the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland’s Primary School Visual Arts based educational programme. It promotes learning through creativity and innovation, placing professional craftspeople to work alongside teachers in primary schools. It focuses on integrated learning methodologies through the Visual Arts Curriculum, using a process-led methodology that focuses on the child’s own creativity.
CRAFTed is being developed and delivered in partnership with the fulltime Education Centres (ATECI) across the Republic of Ireland.
