Last Friday saw the turn of the younger members of the Devoran community to hear all about the iconic vessel, the Rhoda Mary, which was built close to their village.

The Legend of Dupath Well… rewritten!

Posted on: 10th March 2017 No Comments

Spring is nearly here and all around us primroses, snowdrops and daffodils are joyfully blooming… We have been tucked away editing these last few months and have just finished this rather humorous film, documenting the workshops we delivered with some very creative and talented children from Pensilva and Calstock Primary Schools. The workshops were part […]

School children inspired by local landscape stories

If you have never visited Carn Grey, just outside the village of Trethurgy in the Clay Country, then we strongly advise you do! Here, an ancient rock perches on the edge of a disused granite quarry, providing the most amazing 360 degree views of the landscape, which… as all landscapes are… is layered with wonderful […]

June saw Storylines and its suitcases travelling to yet another part of Cornwall as part of the ‘Landmark Travels’ Project. This time we returned to Wadebridge to find out all about Trevanion Culverhouse, a mediaeval pigeon house.

Visit to Wadebridge for Landmark Travels

Posted on: 24th February 2016 1 Comment

In late January, Storylines went up North! Well, North Cornwall to be precise, on the search for more stories, this time as part to the Landmark Travels Project. We certainly packed it in over the 3 days we were there, staying in Edmonton for a couple of nights to cut down on travelling. The constant […]

Memories of school days in Praze. Linking Lifetimes continues

Posted on: 6th November 2015 No Comments

To begin our story exchange in Praze, children from Crowan school decided they would like to know more about peoples school days. The children thought very carefully about what questions they could ask (they are now seasoned story-explorers so asking good questions has become a skill!) and created prompt cards that we could use with […]

How old is old?! Linking Lifetimes continues

Posted on: 6th November 2015 No Comments

When does someone become ‘old’? How about very old?! This is the question we started off with for our recent Linking Lifetimes workshop at Crowan school. Children personal responses were added on the age hoop to give us a starting point for what turned out to be a very interesting discussion about age. What words do we […]
