Everyone a Maker: Stories Come Alive
Sunday 28 January
IN A NUTSHELL
A brilliantly colourful playful interactive storytelling and story-making session for families.
Join in with interactive storytelling and then make up your own story inspired by a special object. Please bring in an object from your home or culture that you would like to use in your story.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Lots of props, actions, joining in, being playful and creative. Together we will make a story and take it away in our hearts. (We will NOT be writing anything down!)

She performs nationally and internationally, her many clients include the Royal Academy of Arts, Kew Gardens, National Geographic, Kensington Palace, Royal College of Music, V&A, Selfridges, Big Fish Little Fish, the Unicorn Theatre, the Conway Hall and many more.
