In 2019 a group of three and four-year-old children visited Lismore Regional Art Gallery. They encountered the Hannah Cabinet – a wondrous piece of furniture and art that stirred the imagination and provoked wonder and questions. This was the starting point of a long journey that saw them visit the workshop of the Cabinet maker/artist while researching how the Cabinet came to be and then designing and building their own cabinet. This webinar shares the story of the children’s journey. It uses it as a prism through which to explore key pedagogical issues: how to sustain children’s interest and curiosity over time, the balance between child-led processes and intentional teaching; how the planning cycle unfolds in real life and how to distil complex play and to learn into effective and powerful documentation.
