Teacher CPD

TurtleStitch - getting more out of physical computing.

Tuesday 5th March 2024 16.30 - 17.30pm (BST)

Attendance: Online- this will be an online meeting

What is Turtlestitch?

WMG Outreach will be running a CPD session for teachers to explore how code, geometry, and embroidery intersect in an engaging educational activity for students. We will give an introduction to using Turtlestitch ( – a free, browser-based, block-code platform that gives students the opportunity to create beautiful patterns with their knowledge of functional maths. Applying maths, design and technology, and computing knowledge to design a creative output is innovative and valuable to students’ learning.  Patterns produced in TurtleStitch can be sewn onto fabric using a digital embroidery machine.

Stitch in Time

Turtlestitch has been the core of the Stitch in Time project which has worked with primary schools to create an exhibition of patterns stitched into felt. Opportunities to get involved with Stitch in Time for primary schools will be discussed in the meeting.


This session will be an online session delivered using ms teams.
