About The Woolgatherers

An Audio Adventure

Woolgatherer (noun)
1. To engage in fanciful daydreaming.

Emergency meeting, emergency meeting! The adults have forgotten how to daydream! Woolgatherers assemble!

The past year has been tough on all of us. Constantly worrying about how to make banana bread, checking we aren’t on mute and pondering whether the loo roll really will sell out again. It has taken its toll on our brains and over the last twelve months we have simply stopped engaging with our imaginations. Gone are the days of in-shower concerts performed to a crowd of roaring fans. No more mentally spending your lottery winnings despite never putting on a ticket. Never again will you win Masterchef of the mind while throwing away yet another failed poached egg. It is time for the Woolgatherers to step in and help!

Join Skillshop Seniors as we reawaken your senses and let you fall back in love with daydreaming. From adventures in the lush leafy greens of the rainforest to expeditions across the ice cold Arctic, you will experience it all on an access-all-areas guided dream tour led by some of the world’s top Woolgatherers.

Lead Artist – Catherine Ward Stoddart
Supporting Artist – Sarah Miele
Assisting Artist – Lisa Kennedy
Sound Design – The Audio Story Company

The Woolgatherers has been created in strict adherence with the Scottish Government’s Covid-19 guidelines for rehearsing and presenting work for digital consumption.
