Storytelling Skills Workshop with Katy Cawkwell

Saturday 11 June 3.30–6.30pm

A Storytelling  Skills Workshop for adult beginners: we will look at the basic techniques for working on a traditional story and creating your own lively, improvised performance.

Katy has been working as a professional storyteller since 1996 in venues across the UK and Europe, including a national tour of performances of The Kingdom of the Heart in collaboration with cellist Sarah Llewellyn-Jones, produced by Adverse Camber and supported by Arts Council England funding.  Her shows have appeared three times at the Barbican Pit Theatre and Beyond the Border International Storytelling Festival in Wales.  In 2008, she was one of four storytellers shortlisted for the Arts Foundation Storytelling Fellowship; this led to another performance at the Barbican and a spot on BBC Radio 3’s The Verb.
Katy has also worked in educational and corporate settings, including Royal Opera House Adult Education, English National Opera, The Barbican, The British Museum, The National Gallery, several government departments, countless schools and companies large and small.

She recently moved to Devon and has begun to run Storytelling in Topsham.
