Creative Arts Offer
Free Storytelling Activities Pamphlet
At its heart this course will be about storytelling and the fact that every one of us is a natural storyteller. Through thought-provoking exercises and games, each of the six lessons will introduce various techniques used in the art of storytelling so that, without realising it, you will build up confidence and skill. By the end of the lessons you will have grown in your ability to express yourself and have some solid tools and exercises that you can use for storytelling and creative writing in the future.
Big Pictures Show at Home
Inspiring films and activities for you to enjoy at home. We will post out a DVD containing a number of inspiring short films suitable for a wide range of ages. The pack will include suggestions for ways to explore the films fully and ideas for related activities. You will need a DVD player connected to a TV, computer or laptop so you can watch the films on the disk. Some of the activities may suggest using everyday household objects, but these are completely optional and no specialist equipment is required.
Sundragon Community Pottery
Sundragon Community Pottery will send out a pack containing air-drying clay, tools, paints and an ideas and instruction booklet. Participants can follow our instructions to make particular projects eg a container and decorative tiles or they will be able to follow their own ideas. We hope that participants will find that working with clay is calming, focussing, enables self-expression, offers skill development, distraction from worry – all disguised as fun.
The Escape Box – Creative Journaling Pack
A gift with all the art materials you need to create your own creative journal and keepsake box. Lots of guided creative activities to have a go at make things personal to you, all delivered to your door.
