Storytelling Workshop Saturday 19th March 2pm – 8pm with Katy Cawkwell of Artemis. Storyteller Katy Cawkwell will be running an “Introduction to Storytelling” workshop at the Community Garden on 19th March.  This is suitable for complete beginners, but should also be useful for people with some experience who would like to use the session to work on a new story.  Katy has 25 years experience of working with traditional tales – folktale, fairy story, myth and legend – and is well-known in the storytelling world for her captivating performances and inspiring workshops.  More details – www.katycawkwell.co.uk
The event is being supported by Literature Works and so is free and open to everyone, but you must sign up for a place in advance and, as spaces are limited, please let us know if you are then unable to attend.  Aimed at adults, but younger would-be storytellers are most welcome (please contact Katy in advance, if participant is under 11). To book a place go to https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/243816370327
We plan to work outdoors if the weather permits, so wrap up warm and bring along the text (or the idea) of a story that you’d like to work on telling – if you’re not sure about this, Katy will have some stories you can choose from in the workshop. Hot drinks available throughout.
Workshop will run 2-5pm.  We would strongly encourage all participants to stay on afterwards for one or both of the “Story Blaze” campfire circles, where workshop participants will have a chance to share their story, if they want to.  
“Story Blaze” campfire circles, hosted by Katy Cawkwell who will also be telling some stories round the fire.  If you’d like to tell a short story at one of these but you can’t attend the workshop, please contact Katy in advance – priority will be given to workshop participants.  All are welcome to listen, but parking is limited – contact Linda if you need to reserve a spot.5.30-6.30pm Children’s Circle (stories aimed at 5-11yr olds, younger children welcome)7-8pm Adult/Teen Circle (stories not necessarily suitable for under 12s)

Ladies Gardening Club – Starting Tuesday 5th April at 11am – 1pm. Running once a week until the end of the season. This is an opportunity for the girls to get together and share time in nature, working on various projects within the garden. Even if you don’t have much experience, you’ll find this small group really friendly and no-one is an expert so we will all be learning together. Little people are welcome to come along too, we will have outdoor activities – toys, sand pit, mud kitchen – to keep children amused. We do provide refreshments, but we would appreciate a small donation if you are able to do so. There is indoor space should the weather turn and there is a compost toilet on site.
