Isle of Stories Festival 2017: AWA WORKSHOPS

© AWA 2017

The Isle of Stories weekend was humming with activities for all ages from Shakespeare on the Beach to a massive community lunch at the Community Village Hall. As part of the Festival Team we were delighted to welcome visitors and families from all over Kintyre and further afield. Achamore Gardens provided a beautiful site for AWA's curated line up for Isle of Stories Festival 2017 with storytelling sessions and workshops by Storytellers Amanda Edmiston and Eric Brennan in the Walled Garden and Botanical inspired arts sessions with AWA in the the Gardens Education Hut. 

AWA would like to say a huge thank you to all those who helped make the Festival possible; the staff, parents and children of Isle of Gigha School, Achamore Gardens Staff and our wonderful storytellers! We are delighted to announce that we helped the Isle of Gigha School Parent Council raise £854.75 for the Isle of Gigha School Fund. Isle of Stories Festival was brought to you by Isle of Gigha School, Amy Wilson Arts, Achamore Gardens and the Scottish Book Trust.
