Explore the art of storytelling and storymaking in a gentle and relaxing workshop. The day unfolds with colourful and playful activities designed to foster the sharing of stories and to develop storytelling skills and creativity. Come along and meet the storyteller within each and everyone of us and discover how the wisdom of traditional stories can enrich our own lives and can nurture our families and our wider communities. Suitable for beginners and those with storytelling experience. The next open workshop will be in Herefordshire in the Autumn of 2019.
Story Space also delivers workshops across England and Wales. These are practical and engaging sessions and involve a range of activities to develop storytelling skills and build confidence. There is plenty of encouragement to develop both professional practice and personal creativity.
