The folktales, fairy tales and myths of our ancestors are the building blocks for every story that has been told since, including plays, novels, poetry and screenplays. The ancient tales continue to inspire poets, artists, authors and dramatists today. Shocking, magical, touching and profound, our traditional tales define human experience. Storytelling is experiencing an extraordinary revival, with adults regularly gathering to hear and tell traditional tales all over the country. This storytelling course for beginners – and those returning to the craft – is a chance to learn how to adapt and tell the myths, legends and folktales that are our birth-right.
