Artists Natalie Zervou-Kerruish, Albert Potrony and Niki McCretton will host Bow Skills: Creative play within Early Years settings and give a hands on presentation about their approach.


Join artists Natalie Zervou-Kerruish,  Albert Potrony and Niki McCretton who will give hands-on presentations about their approach to working in early years settings. 

Albert, Natalie and Niki will share their experiences and discuss their methods, exploring how artists can encourage and support play in early year’s education. The session will equip you with ideas and possibilities to consider when facilitating your own workshops and projects with under 5’s.
