Crack a Story: Plant a Seed *Winter Special*: Franziska Droll – Frau Holle

At the Salisbury Centre’s Crack a Story: Plant a Seed sessions we invite storytellers to share a story dear to them, with a spiritual theme. It is followed by a “crack” – Scottish word for conversation – exploring the story, its deeper meanings and how it speaks to us and our world today.
On Wednesday evening the 9th of December, we’re delighted to be hosting storyteller Franziska Droll for our winter special online on zoom! Originally from Germany, she’ll be sharing the famous tale of Frau (mother) Holle.
When the air gets colder, the nights longer and the days to Christmas are coming closer, all children dream of a white Christmas. And in Germany they all pray that Gold-Marie will be with Frau Holle, shaking her feather pillows out of the window, so snow will fall down on the earth. Come and cosy up on your couch, and hear their story!
After the story you’re invited to stay for some conversation and creative activities to explore the story more.
Because of Covid-19 restrictions, the storytelling session will be online.
**You’ll be send a zoom link when you sign up on Eventbrite.**.  (Please make sure to Register on EVENTBRITE)
