Creeping Toad works with groups to find ways of celebrating the places where people live, work and play
- tells old stories
- creates new stories with poems
- invites explorations
- creates celebrations
There might be lost tales, mouse maps, finger-tip elephants or fluttering butterflies
We might make wolf masks, processional fish, colourful flags or a woodland of dancing tree-people
There could be tiny bottle lanterns, giant lantern bumblebees or maybe just a simple winter woodland glow for a December tabletop
We might work with ponds and pools, rivers, gardens and parks
There might be trees, wood, moors, mosses and squelchy bogs,
fossils, stepping stones, sand and rock
crystals, caves, shadows and lights….
Creeping Toad celebrates people, places and wildlife
Through these last couple of years of disturbance, disappearing bookings and underlying distress, at Creeping Toad, we saw almost all our group activities vanish. But Toads are persistent animals and Creeping Toad is still here and ready for new adventures!
Over the last two years there were all sorts of unexpected activities – film-making for one….drop in on the films below or go to the Creeping Toad channel on youtube for others: https://www.youtube.com/user/Creepingtoad
and for a sense of Toadwork in a bigger context: Art and the Environment (for CelebrationEarth!)
