Storymakers with Mudpie Arts

Storymakers with Mudpie Arts
Fantasic For Families
  • Adults go free

Storymakers is Cast's weekly session for under fives and their carers run in partnership with Mudpie Arts.

Each session is based on a wonderful picture book. The session begins with half an hour of craft followed by forty five minutes of drama and creative play. Here the story is explored through drama games, role-play, music, dance, puppets, multi-sensory play, storytelling and lots of dressing up!

The children take on characters. They are encouraged to express their own ideas and make the story their own. Only at the end of every session do we reveal and share the picture book.

The aims of Storymakers are to encourage book sharing and creative play for all. We  demonstrate ideas that can be enjoyed at home. We wish to empower young children to find their voice and to let their imagination fly!
