A summerfull of stories

A summerfull of stories

can help set a story in motion, Tiny! 2014

These last few weeks have seen a whirlwind of activity as the Summer Reading Challenge workshops start running through their Mythical Mazes and Derbyshire Legends

But there have been other livelinesses as well…

Buxton Art Trail, 2014
Buxton Art Trail - telling stories surrounded by wonderful artwork in the woods of Grin Low - congratulations to the many artists who exhibited here and especially to Ruby Moon who held it all together!

Tiny! our Tiny! adventurers were back for another day of delightful craziness in the Pavilion gardens in Buxton

Just telling stories: Brownies at Thornbridge Outside near Bakewell (audience over the day of c 150), in the Magic Storytelling Yurt for High peak Community Arts  in the Buxton Festival (total audience: c 280)…and today in New Mills

in action at Thornbridge, 1

I'm not very good at staying still...

and it is hardly surprising that in the middle of all this, after an exciting day preparing for Hen Harrier Day (10th August - get out there, my lovelies, and soar like a Harrier), I subsided into a heap and slept for 24 hours and decided that i would have to forego the pleasures of Druid Camp. Apologies to anyone there who was dreading a Toad workshop. Another time?

Next August livelinesses:
Wednesday 6th Worksop Library: Summer Reading Challenge workshop
Thursday 7th, Ogden Water Country Park: storywalks inspired by butterflies, bumblebees, bimbly-bees and the wild creatures of the woods (they have booked me, and i will be there even if I'm not on the programme!
Saturday 9th: Derbyshire Myths project: Killamarsh (10am - 12 noon) and Dronfield (1.30 - 3.30) libraries
