Inspired Tales - Storytelling Workshop For Adults
Celebrate this year's National Storytelling Week and try the storyteller's craft for yourself in a Sunday workshop at Stroud's Museum in the Park on 5 February.
Course tutor Chloë of the Midnight Storytellers, will guide participants through a sequence of spoken word exercises. No writing required! The day rounds off with the sharing of tea and tales, your moment to try out what you've discovered.
“The idea is for people to be inspired by objects and images from the fascinating collections around the museum,” said Chloë. “Some items will remind people of their childhood or grandparents, other pieces will fire up fantastic fiction. In modern storytelling, we want to hear personal and true life tales as well as traditional folklore and legends. Real storytelling is not just for children!"
“For 20 years I've been on a quest for new forms of spoken word story that will win the hearts of modern audiences,” added Chloë. “The Inspired Tales workshop is your chance to find your own unique way of storytelling and have a fabulous, fun time doing it.”
The day is affordably priced at just £15, including tea, coffee and biscuits, but advance booking is essential. Please register with Museum in the Park 01453 763394. Booking deadline is Monday 23 January.
National Storytelling Week runs 28 January to 4 February 2017. The week is always scheduled for this time of year to link with fire festivals, renewal for spring - and the very important Blessing of the Throat.
