Sunday 16th September
12 – 4pm
Mt Cook Adventure Centre
Wirksworth DE4 4LS
Do you like rocks?
Do you investigate stones and enjoy fossils?
Join us for a different take on some familiar minerals!
We’re going to be making puppets inspired by the rocks and fossils of the Adventure Centre site. There will be stones to handle, fossils to look at and artists to help you turn ideas into puppets. We know that there are stories hidden in rocks, secrets in stones and every fossil has a tale to tell. So, why not join us to help some puppets fossilise, sediment out or just erupt, and add your own wodnerful pebble person to our pile of talking stones and wandering rocks….
Activity is free: just come along and join in
Like all the Derwent Stories events, Talking stones! is open to anyone who wants to join in but activities are structured around families with children with additional needs

I am the Calcite Queen with a crown of crystal,
I am the Boulder King, round and heavy as granite,
We are The Lava Gang, waiting, ready to run,
Waiting, waiting, waiting for the volcano alarm clock!
