Yesterday we meet a little earlier than usual, at 1.30pm, for our Story becomes Art workshop.
As Digging and Delving is a project designed to be inclusive our focus was on what makes a good community.
After a few warm ups, Alex, who was the sessions volunteer facilitator, told the story called Stone Soup.
The traveller lights a camp fire and begins to boil a pot containing stones - the villages slowly creep out to see what is happening and he invites them to contribute food to the pot - in the end the villagers begin to communicate with each other and their mood gets lighter.
We went on to talk about community and it's meaning. The group as individuals were invited to create a picture from their thoughts about the story. Lots of different art materials were available.
