playful creativity
A day to play with words, this workshop encourages participants to find “adventures everywhere”... anywhere. It will offer activities designed to draw inspiration from simple observation, fostering confidence in participants own skills and encouraging innovation within supportive activity structures. The activities used will also allow ideas to merge as a number of short activities flow together to give longer more intricate adventures
The activities used here have been tried and tested with family groups, on adult events and with school children - often in situations where Literacy is an issue and activities are needed that remove worry and fear and encourage simple enjoyment of words

Programme will include:
  • first words: setting out on an adventure 
  • adventures everywhere: short activities with minimal equipment for use outside 
  • holding onto adventures: ways of recording our words 
  • bigger stories: working in groups to make quick, longer pieces
celebrate wonder
Activity options:
  • developing story characters,
  • deriving adventures from found objects or artefacts
  • making your own books
  • the value of treasure
  • story bundles
* rates for individuals / charities / businesses
