I have worked with many people in nature, from simple story walks, seeing what we can discover on route, enhanced by stories and song, or being in a place to settle in and play, make fire, cook, whittle, find, create pattern, watch spiders scuttle and hear birds sing.
I can work with individual groups, schools, young in age or those who want to be more young at heart. Come and be in the green.
Middleton Park P7’s were inspired to create their own space tales, using findings from the wood: Middleton Park – Space Stories
