Storytellers of Ireland presents:

Órla Mc Govern: Casting the Net - A Storytelling and Improvisation Workshop

Date: Saturday 25 June

Venue: Ballyeamon Barn, Cushendall, Co. Antrim

Time: 10am - 4pm

Tickets: Includes tea, scones & lunch

€45 / 37 pounds for non SOI members

€35 / 29 pounds for SOI members

During this workshop, we will explore the art of storytelling through the lens of improvisation and co-creation.

There is always a story to tell, a moment to reveal, all we need to do is find the right lens and there it is.

We'll work with improvised stories, personal stories, and folk tales.

Reveal the treasures hidden in the ordinary day, have fun stretching your creative muscles as we cast the net for a great catch of tales!

This is a workshop for all, particularly those interested in creating new stories.

Capacity limited, early booking advised.

Monaghan Yarnspinners 

The Monaghan Yarnspinners meet online fortnightly, on a Friday evening from 8.30 – 10.30pm. There is a very loose format to the evening and all are welcome. Drop in any evening that it's on to tell a tale, share a poem, sing a song, or just to listen and enjoy - whatever you feel like doing. Pieces are usually 3-7 minutes long to allow as many as possible to contribute and priority is given to local tellers. However, we have had tellers from Hackballscross to Hawaii!

Autumn/Winter 2021 dates concluded on Friday Dec 10th.

Contact for details on how to join our 2022 sessions.
