‘These ideas really work with all abilities – that’s the great thing about them.’ – Dave Wilson, Advisory Teacher

‘I really liked making the stories grow bigger and get interesting. It was fun and it didn’t feel like work.’ – Leo Smithson (9)


Yarn Spinning is packed with more entertaining games and ideas, this time all about weaving the fiction web convincingly and flexibly – making the ‘yarn’ twist and turn and go at interesting tangents whilst keeping the central thread. It draws extensively on techniques developed by oral storytellers in cultures around the world for making old stories real, immediate and alive, modelling these ways of enhanced communication in ways that really engage players of all ages in stretching plots. Explore the hidden landscapes of stories through The Bright Yellow Bird, Magic Bags, Puffs & Hatchets and many more.
