Stories & How to Tell Them are a series of practical workshops that can be accessed independently or as part of a short course. Ursula first developed them for story enthusiasts and educators who had a passing interest in the art form but weren’t sure of how to go about finding, rehearsing or sharing a story. The focus of each session is to enable participants to find their own storytelling style. Ursula facilitates this by sharing structuring and communication techniques & suggestions of where and how to source captivating material.

I could not believe how much I learned in a short time. Working in groups and with plenty of lively discussion we were shown how to identify the essence of a story and then how telling the story from a different angle can radically change it and indeed – how it is told! Ursula has given me the courage to do things differently. Each workshop was a mini master class.
