A storytelling masterclass for emergent young storytellers.

Join us to devise, develop and craft a story to entertain audiences of all ages. No experience is necessary – just a desire to learn and create!

During the workshop you will rehearse and perform your story, finishing the day with a short piece that you can share with family and friends or stream online. We will be exploring frameworks to structure tales, story line development, tools to enliven characters and tricks to tickle your audience silly.

Join experienced storytellers and facilitators Deborah and Danny for a workshop where you will laugh, learn and leave with confidence in your storytelling.

Once you’ve finished writing your masterpiece, your story will be live streamed at the end of the day. This will also provide an opportunity to hear from our afternoon workshop, MAKE MUSIC FOR FILM who you will be collaborating with for the live stream at 6PM. Live stream details/link to follow.

Youth Masterclasses have tiered pricing to accommodate your means, Option 4 (£20) is the standard price for the class and every penny that we take will go toward supporting our artists and facilitators (as well as covering some boring ‘operational costs’ – yawn). But please choose a tier that you are comfortable with. The most important thing is making sure that you enjoy the class!
