Workshop presented by ArTEIER
Small Stories provides and supports storytelling experiences for young children (3-6 years) and their parents and caregivers.
This is a tailored performance and workshop session that encourages storytelling and creative play.
Come and join performers Leigh Tesch and Kirsty Grierson in an adventure you can experience in your own home as dining tables become landscapes in unknown places and you create your own puppet creatures to inhabit them. Families will be sent a video link and materials in the week prior to the workshop. Stories will be told and shared by everyone who participates in this unique experience.
