Previous Chwedl event – a workshop with Nell Phoenix!

An Introduction To



Often as storytellers we chose stories instinctively, trust our guts to help us with the structure and rhythm of a story, and rely on charisma to connect with our audiences.

What do we do when we want to challenge our choices, a received understanding of a story, or how we relate to listeners?

Through STORYTELLING WITH ARCHETYPES we can refresh our understanding of well-known repertoire, unwrap new stories and develop our own versatile storytelling voice.

The work is physical, vocal and playful – even via Zoom!

We will work in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere – and be challenged in our practice.

Participants will need a good grasp of the English language, some storytelling experience and an open and curious mind. Please be prepared to fully participate.

Nell Also Says:

I have developed STORYTELLING WITH ARCHETYPES over years of my own performance, storytelling and training work. I have used it as an inspiration for story work with young students, aspiring and professional storytellers. It is rooted in the work I did with John Wright and Frankie Armstrong when I was performing in mask theatre nearly 30 years ago.

I have taught ten week courses in London, and day and half-day introductions in Sweden, Belgium and The Netherlands.  This is nourishing work for experienced storytellers.

I also run 10 week courses for storytellers at all stages of their practice.

WHEN 10.30-16.00 on Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th April, (You must be able to attend both days)

WHERE In your own home, on zoom. We will send you the link in good time

WHO Open to women, and those who identify as women, who have some experience of storytelling and are eager to develop their practice.

COST £75.  There will also be two subsidised places at £25 each.

This course has been arranged by Chwedl, the network of women storytellers in Wales.

It is a fundraiser for Gwobr Esyllt Prize 2021.

The Chwedl Panel is grateful to Nell Phoenix for this support to women storytellers.
