Tayberry Tales are looking for facilitators to work alongside people with learning disabilities who are taking part on the Accredited Sensory Storytelling Apprenticeship Scheme. Facilitators work alongside the apprentice storyteller giving them support and getting to know them not only when they are on their course but on completion when they go out in the community to tell their stories. Please contact PAMIS if you are interested.
“When a story is told it is not forgotten. It becomes something else. The memory of who we were, the hope of what we can become.”
Well that’s the end of the storytelling festival and what a great festival it was with our community of storytellers. They were demonstrating their multi sensory storytelling skills and last Friday saw them present a multi sensory story workshop, and receive their certificates for completion of their five week introduction to storytelling. They now begin their placements for their two year apprenticeship.
The Maiden who rose from the Waves
Claire and Anna Marie from Finland were telling their beautiful tale in a stunning performance that created magic and the blending of the Finnish and English language. They wove a memorable story that held the audience spellbound . Claire and Anna Marie have told the story before in Finland but this was their first telling in Scotland. They told it in Perthshire, Edinburgh and Dundee.
Great to be a part of the Storytelling festival and looking forward to the coming months and seeing how Tayberry Tales develops.
