Event Detail

"As humans we all tell stories at one time or another - maybe you tell bedtime stories to your kids, or anecdotes or jokes to your friends or work colleagues? Stories come in many forms and this workshop is about exploring what oral storytelling is and can be, and how you can develop your own tale-telling skills!

In this session you'll join local professional Storyteller Justine de Mierre for a workshop that introduces the basics of storytelling, helps you find your voice and allows you to have a go at it yourself.
 
We’ll be talking about storytelling, doing some storytelling exercises individually, in pairs and in groups in the first half and there'll be the opportunity to work on a specific story - either one you've brought with you, or one chosen from a selection Justine will have at the session, and there'll be the chance to share that with the group if you want to at the end.  

Justine celebrates a quarter of a century as a professional performer this year, and has been a professional storyteller for the last 12 of those. She was a founder and Artistic Director of the East Anglian Storytelling Festival from 2015 to 2018, runs the bi-monthly Tapas ‘n’ Tales night at The Kings Head in Woodbridge and has told stories both locally and nationally including telling at the Cambridge Folk Festival, Folk East, Hay Festival, Edinburgh Book Festival, Bath Literature Festival, Primadonna and The National Centre for The Folk Arts in Somerset. She has taught storytelling to librarians, teachers, performers and most recently prisoners, and loves sharing her skills and knowledge to ensure the art of telling tales survives for may years to come!  For more information on Justine and her work you can visit www.sowhatsthestory.co.uk and www.facebook.com/sowhatsthestory for up to date news."
