About this event
With Sally Pomme Clayton.
This workshop is for absolute beginners who want to start exploring the art of telling a story.
Parents, librarians, teachers, nurses, writers, performers … spend the day discovering the creative process of liberating a story from a book, setting it free, and bringing it back to 'a life on the wind' by telling it.
Performance storyteller and author Sally-Pomme Clayton takes participants through a series of creative, thoughtful and fun practical tasks.
The workshop will focus specifically on telling fairytales, myths and legends - traditional stories that belong to us all.
We will look at: different types of stories; story structures; memory; meanings; making a story your own; imagery and visualisation.
We will use the tools of - writing, map-making, telling, listening, imagining, and re-telling.
You will work on our own, in pairs, and in small groups throughout the day.
For this workshop participants are asked to bring a short traditional story to work on.
A traditional story is a: fairytale; legend; myth; folktale; fable.
The story should not be more that two pages long (but it can be as short as half-a-page.)
Try to bring a story that you have not told - you will get much more out of the workshop.
