Storytelling without a book, DVD or CD….our stories and those of the children.

On Saturday, July the 3rd, I am leading a  storytelling workshop in Arch Hill,  taking participants on a journey through the rich landscape of oral storytelling, sharing tips and tools and offering inspiration for a playful immersion into trusting that we are all storytellers already….. we are! you only have to go to a cafe and watch  every  Sue, Sally and Sarah in full flight… and they’re not even ECE teachers (although they may be parents)!! click here for more informaton.

Come and join me on Saturday… and get playful and support the children in your  care to become confident about THEIR own storytelling voice as a result.  Oral literacy is the foundation of written literacy and we are the role models!

This document (in the link) is to prepare people for what to expect when they come to a wet felting workshop and to give them some idea of the process. This underwater piece that was a demonstration creation during a class, showing how all the different prefelts, fabrics, yarns and silks and more could be incorporated to create a beautifully colourful composition and design.

p.s I also lead eco-printing workshops with eucalyptus leaves and onion skins, plus plus… but that is another story. I really must update my website and write about what I am currently up to!!
