Finding Stories in Nature

In this session you will immerse yourself in the beautiful woodlands of Eden Forest in Honley to find the secret stories hidden amongst the trees and ignite your imagination. 

The session will run as follows: 

11am Welcome, hot drink around the fire, intention setting and warm up exercise. 

11.30am A quick tour of the paths and then explore the woods at your leisure – find the hidden treasures, take photos of characters in the trunks, create leaf art, listen to the birds, or imagine hidden fairy doors – what are your senses showing you? Let your imagination run riot. 

12 noon Gather around the fire to write, with additional prompts to help grow your idea. 

12.45pm Lunch: choose the toppings for your own wood fired pizza (included in ticket price) 

1.20pm How could you add a twist to your tale? 

1.30pm Sharing work: read aloud a section of your story, if you feel comfortable to do so. 

2pm Feedback: what is one thing you will take from today to help you write more? 


Please bring a notebook and pens with you.
