What we'll do
For me storytelling is about building wonder and connection. In this workshop we'll develop a character and I'll tell a short story which involves that character , a sack of gold and buttercups - and possibly some fairies too. We will have a go at learning that story and re-telling, it so you have it in your memory banks for ever. We'll also share some stories ourselves to build trust and connection, before we look at a handful of tips and tricks to engage audiences and build your confidence as a storyteller.
