People were asked to bring in a small object. Something which had meaning or a story, felt interesting to see or touch but also something they would be happy to give away. It could be a part of something like the wheels from a skate-board, a pair of sunglasses, a soft toy or a spiky ball. They may end up being part of the design work on stage or they may just contain their stories. One group talked about the tortoise for a long time. For some people it meant comfort because the tortoise has a shell. For other people the tortoise meant old in age and time. Hugo chose a tinselly paperweight because it was crunchy and had weight. Arlo chose a spiky ball because it felt good in his hand. He liked the colour - "pink is a happy colour, you don't get sad pink it's always happy pink". Dayna chose Pooh because he's soft and squishy and reminds her of childhood, of good times.
