What do delegates say about The D&T Roadshow?

It was great - the message about multi materials was strong and inspiring. 

Absolutely fantastic course, enjoyed it all and am brimming with ideas. Excited rather than concerned about delivering the materials content. 

Amazing course. Love the short, sharp tasks and time to play. Loved the applying of other materials outside my experience too. 

It was such a brilliant day & I’m going away feeling inspired. Really well organised day. 

Really great price considering the time, materials, content and inspiration. 

Exceeded my expectations. I’m buzzing with ideas to take back to my school. I’ve had a fantastic day!

The underlying message of positivity was encouraging. 

[attended] as a nervous RM 'specialist' trying to get some inspiration for delivering the Textiles content of the new spec. I'm now absolutely buzzing! Well resourced and very, very useful, I'm very glad I went. If you get the chance to attend - do.

A great low cost informative course with plenty of ideas to take back to school.

It was more relevant to me as a non specialist Product Design teacher than I expected. 

Lots of ideas and opportunity to actually use them.

Really fantastic to have an affordable course on a Saturday. 

Great combination of workshops. Fantastic affordable course.

Made me feel more confident with those pesky bits of the curriculum! So many links and ways to combine materials. I was worried about levers and mechanisms but now I have textiles equipment examples which will help me explain things.
