Newport Substation, a magnificent industrial building, re-purposed as an arts venue. A grand space for a workshop!

Huge thanks to Alex Kharnam and Matt McArthur who lugged lights, helped set up the spaces and generally attended to organising the spaces, as well as telling stories.
And massive thanks to Fionnula Smyth who heated soup, buttered bread, brewed chai, washed cups and pots and generally kept the kitchen in order so the guests at Stories by the Fire would have full stomachs as well as full hearts.
