'Blummin' lovely to see you, and thank you for your stories'

Festival, circles & Workshops

 

I have a variety of workshops that I can facilitate from teaching basic storytelling skills and creative writing through to nature journalling and story walks.

 

I can create bespoke workshops to fit your theme and have worked with the Hampshire and Isle Of Wight Trust, Gilbert White's House, Butser Ancient Farm and Portsmouth Grammar School to provide a variety of different workshops. I also run small gatherings and story circles where participants join together to listen to stories with seasonal themes and explore how they connect us with nature and the landscape

For festivals, as well as full length shows and story sets I can provide roving storytelling for your event with my apothecary of tiny tarot tales. The Old English word for story is spell and for each event I collect together eight different spells in eight little bottles which can fit to a theme, season or era. 

Get in touch to find out how we can work together.

TESTIMONIALS

'Spent an amazing day on a storytelling course learning about stories, nature and place, with DD Storyteller. I learnt so much and heard some wonderful tales. Definitely recommend her course and events.' Holly Medland

 

'A fabulous day at Butser Ancient Farm learning oral storytelling techniques by connecting with nature and place... with the awesome DD Storyteller' Richard Davies

 

'I spent yesterday in an incredible setting Butser Ancient Farm enjoying DD Storyteller's 'Rewild Yourself Through Story' workshop. The day was well organised and Dawn, herself, was lovely; so friendly and a natural teacher. The group was small enough for everyone to be heard if we chose to read out our work, in answer to exercises Dawn gave us. She kept us engaged, throughout; she told us a few tales to highlight points she had made; and she was also generous in answering my (possibly too!) many questions.
I will now keep a look-out for her future events and I highly recommend her to others.'
Fiona Lane

 

'I signed up to the story telling workshop with a mix of excitement and nerves. Dawn was great at making us all feel welcome and comfortable. It soon became clear there was no wrong answers, daft questions or prescribed way of storytelling. What we found was a font of knowledge, a space to explore and freedom to share. I came away inspired and feeling like I had made new friends. In fact I joined the Storytelling Club which takes place in the same amazing setting.' - Heather Chalkley

'Beautiful and gently nourishing evening of story, folklore and crafting from DD Storyteller at a gorgeous location - The Wild Nest Yoga Studio, in Petersfield. Perfect way to spend Sunday evening. - ' Sam
