Tetley Workshop – Matchbox Stories 2

I got the opportunity to run this workshop again this week at The Tetley. The participants didn’t disappoint with their creations, and I really enjoyed seeing the stories come together and the magical worlds that were created.
I learnt all about Pokemon as I was very privileged to help a young boy piece together his story from the roll of the story cubes.
We had dancing aliens, otters, red fire engines, flowers, palm trees, dinosaurs, a leopard called Samantha, a new version of the hungry caterpillar and so many more.
I had such wonderful feedback, story telling, and creating worlds and tales seem to be a huge hit for the families – yes, even parents got involved!

Below are a selection of images and a couple of the book stories in full. I wish I had taken photos of all the books this way last time.


Fred The Dancing Alien

The Otter
(Dictated by the author to her father)

The Hungry Caterpillar
(New version)

The Sad Sheep
(I created my own book, with a variety of different ways to illustrate. It’s an example of what could be done, rather than my skills as an illustrator)
