Reindeer at All Year Round Winter Solstice

Making Masks

Making Masks

Just before Christmas we held our last All Year Round of 2013 with a celebration for the Winter solstice.

The day was themed around the Sami reindeer herders of Northern Europe. We made reindeer masks then learnt a Reindeer Herders song. After a delicious bring and share tea, Pamela Gaunt told a wonderful story about the lives of the Sami reindeer herders, and the adventures of two Sami children as they travel to see the Mountain King during the dark of the Northern winter. There was plenty of audience participation singing the song we had learnt earlier and the children providing atmosphere with percussion instruments.

Our next All Year Round will be for Imbolc / Candlemas on Sunday 2nd February. A warm welcome to all!
