SHARING THE MAGIC OF HIGHLAND STORIES
Lizzie has gathered a collection of Highland Stories that have been passed down through generations.
'To celebrate how stories hold communities togeather I have made THE HIGHLAND STORYPANELS with children from all around the highlands, they give form to the pictures that stories make in the minds of both storyteller and listener, connecting us to a long tradition. They are like doorways into the Storyworld'
The stories all feature plants and animals of the highlands and can connect us to the wonderful shared heritage of folklore, stories and beautiful natural environment.
The Rowan , Hazel, Birch, Scots Pine, Heather, Broom, Thistle, Bluebell and Snowdrop as well as many birds and animals feature in the Stories which include The true Story of the Loch Ness Kelpie, The Fairy Hill, The Birth of Ossian, The Seilkie Wife, The Seeing Stone, The Fox and the Crow , The Swan Princess, The Owl and the Storyteller . The Salmon of Wisdom.

I make a pair of panels one to stay in the school so the children can retell the stories on their panel and one to become part of the Highland Storypanel collection.
I also take the Storypanels all around the country retelling the stories that inspired their making.
Many people have enjoyed the wonderful heritage of Highland Stories that the Storypanels celebrate.
This is fun and an exciting way for children ( and adults ) to hear about Highland Culture and aspects of Highland History .
Stories include The true Story of the Loch Ness Kelpie, The Fairy Hill, The Birth of Ossian, The Seilkie Wife, The Seeing Stone and many more.
