Dorset Forest School – Making a Myth
Investigate the myths and legends surrounding some of the ancient stones in the area, such as the Hell Stone, Grey Mare and her Colts and the valley of the stones. Then create some new myths about how they came to be there before sharing these new stories around the fire circle at the end. Focussing on the geology of the site, and using the chalk to make paint, we will then decorate our own stones with chalk and coloured clay to make a simple game of tic tac toe. Using stones, wool and leather cord, create staffs and story sticks using wool and lashing techniques. This will be an outdoor adventure so make sure you bring a packed lunch, wear suitable outdoor clothing and robust footwear. This Artsreach workshop is suitable for ages 5-12 years.
