How do you release creativity in children? Well one novel way I have witnessed is stone stacking. What is that you ask? Well a gentleman called James Page actually does workshops in schools about this very subject. James is a talented artist who took up stone stacking – years ago and went to Texas this year to compete in the World Stone Stacking Championships.
Stone Stacking brings together the skills of traditional cairn building alongside artistic expression of rock balancing. Stone stacking is an art-form in which rocks are stacked on top of one another to form different shapes without the use of anything other than the rocks and gravity. The workshops involve art and artistic expression and have the ability to improve education and attainment at school for all age groups.
