Story and Music-making from Nature and Place
Sat 2 Mar, 10.30am (6hrs)
(Crafting Your Skills)
Evoke a story from nature, like the sound created by a shell and other natural objects that can make music. How does the natural environment inspire our stories and what are the sounds that can be derived from nature? Attuning our ears as to how nature, land and the environment shapes and influences story and music making, this workshop will offer a range of simple practical resources, and plenty of ideas and inspiration for using in schools and community settings.
With storyteller, park ranger and teacher Malcolm Green, and musician/teacher Gordon Turnbull.
