About Mrs Arty-Textiles

Gemma Whitelock writes and designs under the ‘Mrs Arty-Textiles’ brand name. During her school and college teaching she regularly blogged on her classroom practice, discussing all things ‘Art and Textiles’ and the name sort of stuck..img_3828-1

As an Art and Textiles teacher of 10 years, Gemma is now finally be able to step away from the full time teaching to do ‘big girl’ work (as she calls it) using her illustration skills and classroom experience to create a range of education products. After having the experience of developing creative skills in others across the secondary and FE sector and completing quite focussed research as part of her MA in education, Gemma wrote a book (How to Create a Quirky Classroom) to encourage more engaging and creative hands on classroom based learning.. This passion for creative learning led to the development of a range of creative kits to encourage families to get involved in more hands on making to balance against the modern tidal wave of technology and ‘screen based’ work.

“It’s probably not a surprise that I believe strongly that the best education experience has a good dollop of creativity in it.. Whether you are a parent wanting to enrich your child’s schooling or whether you are part of the ever increasing network of home educators in the UK, the education kits provide lots of opportunities for creative development at home.”

Gemma is also available for consultancy work to support the development of creative project based learning opportunities and custom branded resources in Primary or Secondary school settings.
