|storymaking in the rain in Migdale Woods|
Up in the far north of Scotland just now in the middle of 2 weeks of storytelling and storymaking with groups....images and some story beginnings....
Story start 1
One dark night in the middle of the forest,
when the trees were swaying and owls hooting,
a boy called Flash and his dog Storm....
Ogden Water: away with the faeries, goblins and trolls!
Shaping stories with drawings, words and found materials...
One freezing cold night when everything was deadly quiet,
someone knocked on my door.
It was a strange little man with long spiky hair....
Out among the midges in Migdale Woods, story makers gather....
and at the end of the day, this big Toad meets a small cousin!
Thanks to all our schools and groups so far:
Ogden Water Country Park, Halifax (1st stop on road north, no they are nowhere near Thurso, the next port of call!)
more sessions next week!
