Story Mat: Threads of Creativity

The story mat was created in partnership with, and the active involvement of, the Nepalese Community (Cheriton Stitch & Chat), Age UK, Folkestone Mind, Friends of Folkestone Museum and local schoolchildren as part of the Folkestone HEART National Lottery Heritage Fund Project.  It was designed and sewn by Jenny Langley, a tapestry and needlework specialist, in consultation with people from Folkestone.

The mat can be used in facilitated sessions for reminiscence, sensory workshops and storytelling for a variety of groups from early years through to the elderly and those who have dementia.
