If you are interested in storytelling, but don’t know where to start; this workshop, facilitated by storytelling pioneer Sheila Wee, is for you. It will give you a firm grounding in storytelling skills and you will leave with one ready to tell story and the tools to learn and tell more stories. In a warm and supportive group environment, you will learn why storytelling is such a powerful form of communication; how stories can be structured to hook your listener’s attention and discover your own personal storytelling style. Through group, partner and individual exercises, you will be guided through a step-by-step method of learning to tell a story without memorizing the words. You will also discover how to add details to make the story uniquely yours, and learn story rehearsal and performance techniques.
