We had great fun running a workshop at the Hay Festival last Saturday. Working with a bunch of wildly creative individuals we discovered (hardly surprisingly) that the best stories are often created by the children not the adults!
Everyone let their imaginations run wild and using a few natural materials made happy heros, face sucking aliens, acorn eating slugs, princesses with magic potions and baddies with rocket launchers disguised as pine cones!
They then equipped them with a boat so they could set off from Hay on the river Wye to explore foreign lands, got to parties, and discover other adventurous places.
The paddling pool came in handy to test buoyancy; some of the boats needed a little extra flotation so as to avoid sinking at the first stage of their journeys!
