To explore the stories connected to the landscape through storytelling and mask work.
There are stories in every landscape and this course will introduce some well-known and little known stories of the area. Participants will be invited to discuss these stories and what this may have said about how people connected to their environment. We will look at how this connection to this has changed over the years and how that would shape stories written today.
The course will encourage participants to devise their own characters through mask making to create contemporary mythologies.
This will be 10 persons maximum for each course at 10am – 3pm daily meeting at the Riverside Centre – £45 per person, £10 each accompanied child for the 5 days. We recommend stout clothing appropriate to the weather on the day with gloves and wellies.
