Taking Bookings for :

The Mother Archetype and ‘Touched Into Being’ – a 4-5-day ECE Professional Development Course on this Healing Rod Puppet

This much requested workshop brings the depth of therapeutic early childhood insights in an artistic and practical way in support of the young child’s foundational senses, and overall development. We will explore the sense of touch as the ‘holder’ of the other foundational senses through the loving qualities of the Mother Archetype. We will create Mother and Baby Rod Puppets and learn how to visually inspire the inner goodness of the embrace, both soul-wise and physical from Mother to Child. We will develop their stories and present our sacred tales. Contact Suzanne for further information.

Fairy Tale Felting Festival for Teachers and Parents - 

Two days of felting – we enter the world of flat and 3 dimensional picture felting, first with the technique of Wet Felting Story Tapestries, and one where we focus on the art of dry felting – Needle Felting Fairy Tale Tapestries – Learn the craft of both of these felting methods!
