  • Maximum 8 people in this workshop, minimum 3


  • This workshop is ideal for anyone who hasn’t told stories before, although experienced storytellers should also enjoy the workshop.

  • We will move at a comfortable pace, giving you time to develop and enjoy yourself without pressure.


  • You need a harp which can tune into C - G - D, more than 20 stings is best

  • Our focus is on using the harp in stories, so technique is not a subject addressed in the workshop.


  • "The Natural Storyteller, Wildlife Tales for Telling” is a book of 48 tales with exercises to spark imagination. While the book is written for children, the stories are timeless, for people of all ages. Harp & Story Handbook, provided with the course.
