‘ …I can't thank you enough for delivering such an excellent course. Although I have attended other storytelling events this is the first where I have felt confident enough to stand up and deliver a story…’
Sharon teaches storytelling to beginners who are starting their storytelling journey, those who want to hone their skills and to professionals. Her practise is immersive, intense, and supports each participant in the discovery of their unique voice as a teller. Fortunate in coming from a multi-lingual background she also teaches abroad, comfortable working with interpreters or in French. She has taught in Romania, France and India and regularly teaches at Halsway Manor, England’s only residential centre for the traditional arts sited in the country's first designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
‘Fire in the Telling’ , was an immersive performance skills storytelling course for those with some storytelling experience or who had been on one of her courses before. This focused on pacing, range of expression and the individual qualities that each teller can use to develop their unique style within a variety of traditional material. Students also had an opportunity to perform for an invited audience. Sharon was also delighted to return with 'Adventures in Storytelling', for beginners, in Dec. 2019. She is currently discussing the possibility of teaching a course for those interested in using storytelling in their ecology focused work and for storytellers looking to increase their repertoire of 'green' stories for autumn 2020
