We deliver a number of different workshops for early years children & their families across Greater Pollok. See below for a list of our current workshops.

We have also developed a new Early Years resource in collaboration with our Ealy Years Artist in Residence and Families. Click here to read more and to learn about games that you can play with your wee ones at home!

Imagine Lab (0-5 years)

Imagine Lab is a sensory Storytelling session for 0-5s and their adults. We come together to sing songs, share stories and take part in exciting activities. The session is developed to engage and respond to all ages and stages within the 0-5 year age bracket. Adults are encouraged to participate when possible, so, wear some comfy clothing and get messy. The group is welcoming and inclusive so do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions or access requirements.

  • Participant Feedback: “My child has benefited from; social interaction with others, storytelling and being imaginative with play times.”

Imagine Lab: Buggy Walks (0-5 years)

Led by our Early Years Storyteller and delivered in partnership with Glasgow Health & Social Care Partnership, join us as we explore the local area includingPollok’s wonderful green spaces!

Each week we will have a different theme (think Teddy Bears Picnic, Gruffalo spotting and Bear Hunting!) As the club is outdoors, in case of extreme weather, or red weather warning, the club would be called off.

Meets every Tuesday at 12pm at The Village. Lunch provided.

Connecting Stories Film

The Village Storytelling Centre presents our short film ‘Connecting Stories’. The Connecting Stories group in Pollok, Glasgow, was set up in September 2021 for families to come together and share experiences of welcoming a baby during the Covid-19 pandemic. The children, ages 0-2years, engaged in immersive storytelling and sensory activities. This was an opportunity for children to explore new opportunities and interact with other babies. It was also a space for their adults to come together and share their experience of a unique time in history where they welcomed new life into the world during a global pandemic. With Storytellers Sarah Rankin and Daiva Ivanauskaitė the group started their journey of reflection and action which has been captured on film by filmmaker Andy Gunn.

Funded by Glasgow Connected Arts Network and Cattanach this short film highlights the challenges, silverlinings and ramifications of lockdowns and Covid rules on Early Years families.

We would like to thank our funders, facilitators, Storytellers and film maker. Most of all, a big thank you to the families who contributed openly and honestly to the film.

Storytellers: Sarah Rankin, Daiva Ivanauskaitė and Trinidad Cabezón
