Introduction To Storytelling I & II

 

--

Interested in storytelling but don't know where to start? These workshops by professional storyteller Sheila Wee are for you.

In two 7-hour modules of hands-on training (over 2 consecutive Saturdays), you will gain a firm grounding in storytelling skills. You will leave with one ready to tell story and the tools and confidence 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 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 memorising the words. You will also discover how to add details to make the story uniquely yours, and learn effective story rehearsal and performance techniques.

This workshop is suitable for beginners.

The workshop comprises of 2 sessions:

  • Introduction To Storytelling I: 27 August 2022, Saturday, 9.30 am - 5.45 pm (In-person)
  • Introduction To Storytelling II: 3 September 2022, Saturday, 9.30 am - 5.45 pm (In-person)
