Storytelling for Beginners

The Nuts and Bolts of Storytelling (one day)

(Suitable for people who want to understand the structures underlying the process of storytelling before they feel comfortable to start telling themselves)

Part One: How to learn a story to tell (half day)

The crucial bit is to learn the bones, but how do you find them. This workshop shows you a process for finding the bones of a story, and how to remember those bones using different senses.

Part Two: How to tell a story (half day)

Having found and learned the bones of a story, it’s time to put flesh on. This workshop shows you different ways to build up your story so that you can tell it in the moment as your unique work, and not as a learned recitation.

They can be combined to make a full day’s workshop.
