Storytelling Workshop

October 4, 2019

Sweet Tree Arts

A storytelling workshop, “Gargantuan Turquoise Stomping Boots – How to make up fractured fairy tales” with professional Story Teller Willy Claflin will be held on Saturday, 19 October, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Sweet Tree Arts in Hope. This workshop is for teachers, tellers, and the curious adults.

The “Gargantuan Turquoise Stomping Boots—How to make up fractured fairy tales” workshop teaches an easy method for making up your own original fractured fairy tales. Parodies are fun to make up, and usually a big hit with audiences. We’ll start by making up a couple of stories as a group, and move on to creating our own original tales. (co-taught by storyteller Maynard Moose). Participants are guaranteed to come away with at least one new, original story to tell!

“Over many years of teaching, I’ve found this to be the best way to get “reluctant writers” enthusiastic about creating new stories. It’s also a way for people to get over the idea that they are somehow “not funny.” The stories created using this exercise almost always succeed, because the underlying structure of the tale is so satisfying. Even serious stories can be written by following the pattern on a well-known tale.”

The assistance of Maynard Moose provides a chance to briefly explore what it’s like to create an alternate persona, or tell a story from a different point of view.

Cost: $50
All are welcome! WORKSHOP REGISTRATION.
