Storytelling Workshops

A further 3 week session of Story-telling Workshops held in Meanwood on Tuesday afternoons. You can attend as many as you like.

When Tuesday 8 October at 2:00pm to Tuesday 22 October at 4:00pm
Where Meanwood Institute, Meanwood
Meanwood Institute, Green Road, Meanwood Leeds LS6 4LD.

Everyone has a tale to tell, but how do we turn a memory into story?

This workshop will provide a warm and welcoming space to explore our personal histories and develop the skills needed to craft our memories into captivating stories.

We will work with our imaginations, our senses and our playfulness. Participants will be invited to work with memories of their choice, and will be supported in the intuitive process of deciding which to tell; if you choose to make it so, the crafting of a memory and the telling of it can be a very healing process. Together we will create a safe space to honour our stories and celebrate our experiences, and encourage each participant to work in a way that nourishes them.    

Each session will offer a different aspect of the craft of the storyteller: from building characters in your body and voice, to creating images in space, exploring the relationship to the listener(s), and developing moods, landscapes and language.   
We will listen to each other's stories and work together in the development process.

Each week will build on the previous week's knowledge, but can also function as a standalone - so feel free to join us when you like.  No storytelling experience necessary - only life experience - if you think you don't have a story to tell, I can promise you, you do! Paper and pens will be provided, but if you prefer to bring your own, please do. Any other materials will be provided
