Storytelling is one of the most ancient art forms used all around the world to pass down wisdom, history or mythology, but has storytelling become a dying art? Join Davina Robinson for this one-off workshop exploring the rules, skills and tricks of storytelling and presenting. We will look at short pieces of text and experiment with voice, whilst exploring "the hook" and presentation style.
