There are many ways of telling stories and using objects while telling stories is one of the most enjoyable for both the teller and the audience. In this very practical workshop, students will be introduced to a number of stories that are enhanced by the use of objects. These may include: story cards, traditional string stories, drawing stories, paper folding or tearing stories and handkerchief stories. The students will have the opportunity to explore the props and practice their use. They will leave the workshop with handouts and materials that will enable them to further develop their skills in telling these types of stories.
