    Great turnout...Fun learning....music and art! Our theme of Five Senses started with exploring SOUND through music and making instruments from recycled material. The importance of SIGHT was brought home in a fun way by Gavin Neate from Guide Dogs for the Blind and "Fudge" a dog in training; loved by all the kids...adults not so sure!! Refreshments helped us explore TASTE and SMELL. Children used their fine sense of TOUCH to create beautiful origami animals. Storyteller Michael Williams kept us all enthralled with tales and songs from around the world.



"We have received only very positive reports of your workshop, and must thank you for being so flexible and responsive both before and in the course of implementing the workshop. It has been lovely to work with you. . . . We are hopeful this project will give rise to future storytelling endeavours, and would be very happy to work with you again if the opportunity arises!" Muireann Crowley, At Home in Scotland, University of Edinburgh, May 2014 ("Storytelling, Research and Public Engagement" workshop)

Michael Williams is a a storyteller of compelling skill. He is also a fine human being who engages in all situations and draws people into the warmth of communication and shared experience." Donald Smith, Director, Scottish Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh Scotland

Working with Michael is inspiring and fun; and pulls you to be fully engaged from start to finish." Norton Bertram-Smith, Managing Director and Leadership Consultant for On Purpose.
