Stories of Place: a one-day storytelling workshop

July 26, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm


Stories and the Land: a one-day storytelling workshop, outdoors!

Sunday 26th July 2020

10am – 4.30pm

Chagford, Devon

A one-day workshop all about telling traditional stories and exploring the links between story and place. This day is for beginners and those who would like to improve their storytelling skills.

We will work with a British wonder tale to look at story structure, character, and idiosyncrasy; walk the story, considering environment and audience; discuss ways to make a story come alive in honouring where it comes from; and work with techniques for remembering story and gaining confidence.

By the end of the day, you will have had the opportunity to work and tell at least one story that you can take away and make your own.

This workshops will be held entirely outside, with numbers strictly limited: social distancing and COVID-19 precautions and guidance will be observed, and you will need to bring your own drinks and lunch.

Please note that the workshop will be walking to several different outdoor locations during the day, depending on weather. We won’t cover more than a couple of miles but it’s a bit hilly in places. You will need to wear stout walking shoes, dress appropriately for the weather and bring something to sit on. There will be a wet weather option in case the forecast is for downpours! Do let me know if you have any questions about accessibility or safety.

Places are £35 per person. Book through Paypal by making your payment to email address lisaschneidau@hotmail.com, or email me for BACS payment details.
