Creeping Toad projects

taking hold of a moment to shape a story
  •  help people find ways of valuing the “specialness” of their homes, schools, neighbourhoods and the wildlife that surrounds us
  •  combine exploration, experience, investigations and discovery with rampant creativity
  •  use stories as a core activity: both traditional stories that might inspire a new look at familiar themes or the creation of new stories as a group explores an idea for themselves
  • foster personal creativity in participants, encouraging opportunities to develop skills, try new techniques, build confidence
  •  look for opportunities for people to find their own connections with the world around them
  •  encourage cooperation to create bigger celebrations, deeper moments or simply new friendships
  • a bottle-lantern from a Tiny! lantern parade

and those Boggarts get everywhere!
