The second of a two-part workshop, this is available as part of a bundle for participants who have attended Introduction to Storytelling I and would like to further develop their storytelling skills. 

Synopsis
If you are interested in storytelling, but don’t know where to start, these workshops facilitated by 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.

Outline 
o Which types of stories works for different age groups
o Understanding the ingredients for an effective storytelling experience 
o Being in the moment - working on being spontaneous in your storytelling 
o How to use effective story architecture in crafting your stories 
o Discovering your natural storytelling style 
o Going deeper into the story for better performance
o Reflections
