Storycraft

The enjoyment of stories and encouragement to explore an imaginary world is paramount to young children. A storycraft session, primarily aimed for KS1 children, takes a book and delves deep into its’ world of words, movement and creativity. A two hour workshop will involve the children in listening to the story, role playing scenes from the tale and craft activities linked around the book culminating in a final ‘performance’ of the story, which is now very much alive in imagination and creativity.

Bookings are now being taken for storycraft sessions around ‘The Little White Owl’ by Tracey Corderoy. This is a tale which looks at the issue of ‘being different’ and celebrating the beauty inside us all. The story takes us on a journey to see the world ,meet new friends and tell happy stories. This proves difficult, however, as the colourful owls he meets do not want to be seen with a plain little owl. There are many themes to be discovered in this story and the children become part of it as they journey across the world too and share their excitement for stories. The owls that they make and create become part of the performance too and hopefully become something they take home and treasure, remembering the story and the message it had to tell.

Other titles are available on request.

The two hour workshops are divided up into story-time, craft and final , practical performance. These can easily be worked around break times and school timetables, whichever is more convenient. Resources are provided.

Fees are £80 per two hour session or £150 for two booked sessions and include resources and expenses.
