6 weeks - Tuesday Nights: 19:30-21:30

(6 week course, including a final showing on last date)

Start Date: Tuesday February 18th

About the workshop:
We are all naturally storytellers. We tell stories every day. But to skillfully harness words and imagination to inspire and light up our listeners - now that is a different story! A story well told allows the listeners to relate to their own ideas and experiences, and can be remembered for years to come.
Come and discover what stories you have to tell, whether traditional or true life tales, whether it's for the stage, the office, the community or the family.
We will gather a toolbox of skills for the art and craft of storytelling, from the inside out.

This workshop is for anyone looking to tell their story - or any story - well. For those who want to unlock creativity, imagination and the ability to captivate and deliver their message. For those wishing to build confidence in public speaking, cultivate the art of listening and dialogue, and for personal and professional development.
