Story Courses, Workshops, Programmes and Tellings

Here you will find storytelling evenings, as well courses and workshops with stories at their centre. Stories were never meant to be listened to and forgotten. Their richness and medicine come from their exploration, discussion and delving deeper in community. 

If you feel like you need to be at a workshop or course, and cost is the only thing stopping you, please get in touch.
