MAKE with the Knit Shop

MAKE with the Knit Shop is a two-year CLPL (Career Long Professional Learning) project designed to embed craft approaches in schools, working together with partners Knit Shop and Dundee Creative Learning Network.


MAKE with The Knit Shop explores the value and potential of teaching craft across the curriculum and equips teachers with the skills, knowledge, confidence and experience, to provide quality education and impactful learning through the arts.

Working with six primary schools in Dundee (Ancrum Road, Claypotts Castle, Fintry, Rosebank, St Mary’s and Downfield) the project introduces teachers and pupils in P5 and P6 to new craft-based approaches, developing numeracy skills using the Dundee Progression Pathways for Numeracy.

Funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Teacher Development Fund, with additional support from Creative Scotland as part of their targeted funding to strengthen the craft sector in Scotland.
