Educational Handwork. EXHIBITION AT DENBIGH. A well-attended meeting was held at the National Schools, Denbigh, on Saturday, under the auspices of the Vale of Clwyd Teachers' Association. The chair was taken by Mr. Haves Jones, of Rhydgaled, president of the Association. Mr. Bedford (principal of Abergele Sum- mer School of Handwork) read a paper on the "Principles of Educational Handwork," in which he showed the great benefits which could be derived from going through courses of educational handwork, including light woodwork, clay and cardboard modelling. These subjects he treated as methods of in- struction rather than subjects of instruction. He also showed how these subjects could be introduced into the school curriculum with- out apparently altering the present time tables. Mr. J. C. Davies, organizer of education in Denbighshire, explained how the author- ity were introducing handwork into the schools. At present nine rural schools had been chosen as experimental schools in light woodwork. If at 1he end of the year satis- factory progress was made educationally, more schools would include handwork next year. (Applause.) On the motion of Mr. W. M. Pierce, seconded by Miss Gee, a vote of thanks was accorded Mr. Bedford. There was a splendid exhibition of hand- work, including light woodwork, paper and cardboard modelling, basket work, art needlework, and ,.Iasticing work. |
