Creeping Toad: environmental art and storytelling

Essentially, Creeping Toad works with groups to find ways of celebrating the places where people live and work and play. Most of our inspiration is environmental and the final appearance of a project is determined by the imaginations of the group involved. I also do single workshops for groups: storytelling, making puppets, lanterns, flags, storymaking have all featured in the past. Qualifications: Bsc Zoology and PGCE (so I am an ecologist and a former teacher) with 35 years experience of working with groups
