Class description

Did you know that some of the best loved children’s stories and poems were inspired by gardens? You may have read Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, The Magic Faraway Tree, Alice in Wonderland or the hugely popular Andy and Terry Treehouse series.

In this workshop, we will use natural materials like tree bark, seed pods, interesting sticks, moss and petals to imagine and write our own garden poems. We will also create a miniature story garden where our imagination and stories will bloom…and be able to take home!

Inkling Writing Studio

The Inkling writing studio runs fun, imaginative creative writing programmes for children. They believe that children flourish in creative and supportive environments, where there is time and space to imagine and express ideas freely. They want to help children develop skills and confidence through creative writing. Currently, Inkling writing studio runs school holiday workshops but plans to start some after school workshops during the school term. TESTIMONIAL FROM PARENTS: "Every child has a magical story to tell. Sometimes kids are reluctant to share a story due to various reasons- fear, inability to find the right words, patience etc. Alison is a wonderful collaborator, who will entice your child to share their imagination through the written word. My own children have loved working with her on their poems and stories - they will treasure what they have written in the years to come. Thank you Alison!" - VIVIEN "Over the past 3 years (is it 2 or 3?) , it has been a delight to drop off my son to Alison's creative writing classes. No matter the weather or season, we were always greeted by a cheery smile and Alison's enthusiasm was no less diminished two hours later at pickup time! What I have seen evolve in my son during this journey, is his ability to weave a story rich in narrative. School ( at least Junior school) does not allow enough time to pursue writing in all its facets and so Alison's classes have added depth as well as fun to my son's education. I don't think he really knew what he was capable of and now I think he is much less daunted when asked to write in the classroom ( or perhaps anywhere?). Thank you Alison for your insights and your passion. Please keep in touch amazing Alison!" - ANITA “Nathan really enjoyed your classes Alison. Thank you for making the class so fun. It was really great seeing him looking forward to the next class and getting enthusiastic about his story. I can really feel your passion and love for writing. Thanks again!” - MARINA "I would just like to thank you soo much for teaching Eiki , you have inspired her to write and improved her English . Last year she was just writing sentences and now I can see she can write a story on her own, you have been a fabulous , kind and dedicated teacher . The best teacher in Australia . No wonder it has been always so hard to book into your classes . Everyone wants to glue to you 😁. " - EILEEN
