This is an outdoor world-making activity to build small-scale libraries suitable for fairies, and furnish them with books children make and write.
There are 3 parts:
To encourage children to make a world no one has ever seen through imaginative visioning and building of small structures made of found, natural materials that can support fairy lifestyles, needs, and behaviors. For storycrafting skills, this workshop empowers children to own and flex their inborn world-making imaginative capacities that are the foundation of all art.
Children are invited to use their story-making imaginations to contribute to a world culture of small, fanciful creatures no one has ever seen—but that world literature offers many lively stories about. Children invent new characters and plots for these creatures, build dwellings for them, and imagine a lifestyle that involves fairy libraries, or other structures children build.
