Imaginary Leaps into Hatfield

Liz travelled down to Hatfield to run two Imaginary Leaps sessions in the beautiful grounds of Great Nast Hyde House:

A Walk In The Woods & Caterpillars and Butterflies were delivered to delighted children and adults alike.

We tried to transform a large renovated barn into a “magical woods” with oodles of tissue paper, string, wool, pipe cleaners, cellophane and soft fabrics.

Some lovely creatures were created including this bumble bee buzzing through the barn.

Once our barn was ready – dozens of children and parents sat and enjoyed an interactive story based on the well-loved classic Hansel & Gretel.  As Hansel & Gretel walked through the barn in search of food, the children became creatures themselves and helped the tiny puppets find their way through the magical woods. The children squeeled with delight when the wicked witch appeared inviting the children into her home and advised Hansel & Gretel “don’t go inside – she will eat you up. Hansel & Gretel agreed with the children and ran all the way home with the help of tiny mushroom lights laid by the children to show them the way home!

The wicked witch waits for Hansel & Gretel - will she eat them up?

 The DNA touring show ‘Chicken Licken’ was also enjoyed by parents and children alike earlier in the day. The very talented Mark Whitaker entertained the guests with his skillful puppetry and convivial manner.
I received this lovely email from David, who invited me to Great Nast Hyde House on the celebration of his daughter’s third birthday:
Thank you Liz. The kids had a great time and we thought you were excellent.
Much thanks and hope to see you next year!!!!
