Earth-painting with paints made from the earth in your school grounds!

 A typical workshop day with, two classes for example, starts with a

  1. 25-45 min assembly for all (whole school if you like!)
  2. followed by two didgeridoo playing workshops – one for each class, before lunch
  3. Chris makes earth pigment paints using earth from the school grounds and the extra pigments he brings
  4. Aboriginal style earth pigment painting session on calico after lunch
  5. Plenary at the end of the day for more stories!

But as you know, each school/group is unique, so do get in touch and lets make a plan for you! 

We thought he was amazing, all of the children had a fantastic time. To have 65 children and some staff all have a go together at trying to play a didgeridoo is something and he managed it so well. Thank you for the workshop!”

Louis in my class was so inspired he has been playing is didgeridoo at home. It was great to watch the CBeebies clip too and we created some didgeridoo fact work using this and the training. Thanks Chris!

It really sparked the children’s interest and it was great to hear about the Dream Time story about the didgeridoo and the termites making the Milky Way. A great experience.
