Workshop: Telling Folk Tales
Before TV, folks gathered to share stories and sing. Learn how to tell a traditional story with a twinkle in your eye. Facilitated by Kate Lawrence and Durgah Devi Palanisamy (Dee) from Storytelling Australia Vic. These two will have you telling tales before you can say 'Once upon a time..'
WHEN: Saturday, July 1 at 11:30 AM - 1 PM
