Join one of the leading storytellers, specialising in stories from Africa, the Caribbean and Arabia. Storytelling takes us on a journey of the imagination, encouraging us to engage the senses and savour the moment. Come and join Jan Blake to experience worlds of love, hate, trickery and fate. You will be joining gods, animals and human beings on their journeys through their lives and hear how they have become immortal through the tales of people.
This workshop explores the treasures to be found in our lives right now expressed through spoken word. We will focus on our present life situations, discovering the gems in the lessons and teachings we receive in the moment.
