An Introduction to Storytelling

Saturday 28th March
10am – 4pm

Spend a day learning the basic craft of the storyteller. We all tell stories and in this workshop you will get to play with tools, learning how to be present, how to listen, how to make a storymap and a mood map, and how thresholds can help us trust that we will be able to remember the story.

Treat yourself to a playful day listening to different kinds of stories, and re-connecting with  an oral tradition that stretches back to a time when we sat round a fire in the winter and shared our stories.

Elly Crichton Stuart learnt to tell stories from her Irish grandmother and at The School of Storytelling in 2003.  She has taught storytelling to staff at Historic Royal Palaces, teachers in Taiwan for the British council, and adults and children in England and Scotland.

“Handled with great empathy and fun making it fun and accessible for all of us. Thank you so much. I feel privileged to have worked with you”.  Chris Lawson, Head Teacher Kersey Primary School.

“Elly created a great atmosphere – relaxing and affirming – and I felt comfortable and safe to explore and try things out.”  Linda Benham, participant on an Introduction to Storytelling.
