PICTURING THE STORY - a workshop with Sef Townsend

As a storyteller working with groups from a whole range of cultures, faiths
and linguistic backgrounds, what do I need to make my stories come alive?
Is it the words? Is it the pictures I'm trying to create? Or is it something else?
In this workshop we'll look at the many different ways of bringing colour, texture
and feeling to our stories, and to ask the question:
'Which stories can I really make work for my audience?'

Sef has been sharing stories for more than twenty five years. Often working with refugees, the exiled and those in asylum detention, he tells in churches, mosques, meeting houses and synagogues, and has been involved in peace & reconciliation projects internationally. Recent work has taken him from shantytown schools in South Africa to the British Museum; from the Korean Centre for Traditional Performing Arts in Seoul to a remote village and refugee camp in the West Bank. In the last couple of years he has shared stories, given workshops and conducted his own research in Belgium, China, Italy, Argentina, and Chile.

Dublin Yarnspinners

The next meeting of the Yarnspinners will be on April 11th at the Teacher's Club, 36 Parnell Square, Dublin 1 starting at 8pm. This month we welcome back Pat ‘The Hat’ Speight as our special guest. The ever-popular Corkman is no stranger to our club over the years. The product of a ‘mixed marriage’ (Cork and Kerry!), Pat specialises in Traditional Irish tales, lacing Munster folklore with wry and knowing humour. He is much travelled and has featured at the US National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough,Tennessee, in Canada and at festivals throughout the length and breadth of Ireland and Britain, representing an authentic flavour of our oral tradition with an infectious dose of jollity. A fine night of tales is guaranteed for all. See you there! Check out the delights in store at

We’ve had great response to last month’s featured Alaskan storyteller  Brett Dillingham and future guests for this season will include Senem Donatan from Turkey.

Dublin Yarnspinners meet at the Teacher's Club / Club na Muinteori, 36 Parnell Square, Dublin 1 at 8pm on the second Thursday of every month.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
