In Education

We are an educational charity with experience of working with mainstream and non-mainstream education, at Primary and Secondary levels, Further Education Colleges and Universities, as well as with community groups. Our current range of ages engaged is 3 to 83 years.

“Fermynwoods quite clearly delivers excellent arts programmes.”
Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture and the Digital Economy

All of our workshops are specifically designed for the groups involved, rather than delivering off the shelf workshops that have already been delivered elsewhere. This allows us to respond to school and curriculum needs through the work of an ever expanding network of artists. National and international artists, at the cutting edge of arts practice, who engage with us because of our reputation in contemporary art; we bring those artists to your young people so that they experience learning in a unique way.

We also have a select pool of Associate Educators – experienced artists who more regularly deliver our education programme.

Our workshops can take place in school, or at many of the locations we work around Northamptonshire.

We don’t charge per student, but instead have a fixed fee for a one off workshop, or for a series of workshops. This can be a more economical way of delivering workshops without having to dilute the quality. We risk assess our activity and have our own Safeguarding Policy, to stand alongside and support those school already have in place.

We were the first arts organisation in the East Midlands to become an Arts Award Supporter, which means we can help you deliver Arts Award and Arts Mark activity.
