Stories in Stone a Summer at Rosslyn Chapel

Over the Summer of 2017 I led storytelling and nature workshops in the grounds of beautiful Rosslyn Chapel, in addition to meeting a varied and interesting international audience whilst exploring themes of nature carved into the chapel’s stonework, I learned fascinating historical stories…

After the reformation, when the chapel had fallen into a state of damp and disrepair it became known as the “Green Chapel” due to its covering of algae and moss…Also, in the roof a medieval beehive was discovered during restoration, it had only one way in and out, a small hole for the bee’s, honey was never collected, the bees were encouraged to live there as tiny winged messangers who connected heaven and earth.
