Riddle Workshops

Over two years myself and Cara Roxanne worked with Exeter University and DAISI* on the Exeter Manuscripts Project. We devised a workshop based on The Exeter Book, the oldest surviving medieval manuscript in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD, which is mostly a book of riddles. Working in schools, young people learnt about medieval literature through a hands on approach to riddle writing and page decoration, as part of a wider project to design an app that brings an understanding of medieval literature to modern minds.

The Riddle Tree

I devised an interactive activity called ‘The Riddle Tree’, which playfully combines guessing games, riddle facts and writing new riddles, for festivals and outdoor events.
