‘Craftsmanship in any sphere is the means not just of achieving beauty but also of teaching truths to others’ (Ruskin in Cole 1992: 22).
This exhibition, curated by CERD EdD candidate Kathleen Taylor, ‘draws together work created by student teachers over many years at Bishop Grosseteste University. [...] Their commentaries demonstrate the importance of seeing through a child’s eyes, and a child’s fascination for the world around them; their journey of enquiry and discovery where implicit cognitive experiences of learning how to learn are made explicit. The collection…represents the beauty of learning and raises implications for teaching. The intention is that of Ruskin’s, to create a National Store of teachers’ skills, knowledge and understanding of what it is to love learning and to teach for learning (Ruskin in Barnes 1985:43).’
