The Joy of Handicrafts

The great value of children learning Handicrafts is frequently highlighted in the press.  At Heritage we are passionate about Handicrafts and we offer a weekly lesson in the curriculum. The human hand is a wonderful and exquisite instrument to be used in a hundred movements exacting delicacy, direction and force. The children make things from material, wool, clay and wire and the end result is something beautiful to take home which they can be so proud of.  Handicrafts teach hand-eye coordination and attention to detail.  They develop fine motor skills so critical to later life, as well as many other skills including patience over a period of time. We see these skills develop from the youngest children, aged 4, to the older ones aged 11 and we have found that both the boys and the girls enjoy it equally –  as many of our photographs show.
