Grace works in schools to support literacies in the outdoors, using stories, play and activities, as well as providing outdoor play for pupils not coping in the class environment. Aberdeen University employed Grace as the community co-ordinator for a local year-long project connected to the environment, organising workshops and training for locals, travellers, teachers and volunteers.looking at traditional and contemporary stories and songs and local history.
Grace runs song classes, storytelling for families, sessions for schools and also outdoor explores which can include story, song walks, story-making, creative writing, song creation with natural, historical inspiration, tool use, fire-making and other fun activities, supporting groups to experience nature in different ways.
Most recently Grace has been working for Scots Radio, supporting schools, community groups to create their own doric films. Grace has co-authored two books with Sheena Blackhall, Aberdeenshire Folk Tales and Scottish Urban Myths and Ancient Legends, and included in the soon to be released Anthology of Scottish Folk Tales published by History Press.
