Creeping Toad – looking into the pond

A tricky year

as most of my workshop/performance work disappeared in a 24 hour space in March, this summer has been spent exploring ideas (see some links below!). I have also been coordinating the arts and education input of CelebrationEarth!, a project linking groups inspired by their creativity, their faith or their environmental commitment (or any combination of factors!), encouraging groups to find new partners and build new ways of working together.

 

This work is very exciting and, given the current situation, very challenging, but there is action and movement and change, please visit our website

Storytelling in 2020

yes, most workshops and performances are off for now. BUT with several schools and other venues, we are tentatively taking bookings for the winter months. Knowing we might have to cancel (many schools aren’t allowing visitors in their buildings just now) and that social distancing with chidlren makes big storytelling sessions tricky (SO, I am offering day 2 of 2 days at 50% usual rate so we can spread classes out more)
