The Singing Storycloth is a collection of eight song-stories from around the world, collected and retold by Helen East. Each story has a theme related to fabric and is supported by activities in music. But there are also activities for making and using a variety of simple puppets. The activities are flexible and can be enjoyed in the classroom in the course of creative work in music, drama, DT, and language, but will also have the potential for short performances at assembly. Puppetry activities are being written by a team of experienced performers and workshop leaders - Liz Waugh MacManus and Mike MacManus of Obelon Arts - with musical activities by Janet Koralambe, music workshop leader and performer with Obelon.
