Workshops to help you learn to tell stories well
The Story People are proud to announce our new storytelling workshop series designed to help new and experienced tellers alike. We will offer one workshop from 6:00 – 9:00 pm on the first Tuesday of each month from January through April.
If you want to learn and practice storytelling for whatever reason — to tell stories to family members, friends, in the work environment, or at storytelling venues — now is your chance to learn everything from the basics to more advanced skills. Workshops will be friendly and supportive. They are taught by experienced storytellers from the Story People. Workshops are supported by a grant from the Washington State Arts Commission.
Series enrollment: Story People Members $80 / Non-members $100
Single workshop: Story People Members $25 / Non-members $30
January 5, 2016: Who Me, a Storyteller?! Part 1. Led by Cherie Trebon
February 1, 2016: Part 2.
Sweaty palms? Butterflies in the stomach? Cat got your tongue? Reconnect to an ancient art form of storytelling and learn to express yourself verbally with power and sensitivity while increasing your confidence. Add vitality to public speaking, performing, teaching, and conversation by utilizing storytelling skills. This fun, non-threatening interactive workshop guides participants through a series of exercises designed to loosen the inhibitions and stimulate creativity. Students will be telling stories before the first workshop is finished.
This is an excellent place to start if you are a newcomer to storytelling.
This is a two part workshop; January is prerequisite for February.
