With #nationalstorytellingweek running from now until 2 February why not head along to one of the events taking place this week at the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
Located on the Royal Mile, it’s a great place to visit whilst exploring the sites that Edinburgh has to offer. There’s lots to see and do for visitors of all ages, and children in particular like the interactive Storywall. There’s also the opportunity to listen to excerpts from Robert Louis Stevenson (one of Edinburgh’s most famous authors), as well as a free exhibition on display from artists and authors from across Scotland. As well as the exhibitions, the centre run a number of events each month – we’ve picked a couple below which are on over the next couple of weeks or so.
A series of independent workshops designed to introduce you to bal folk (the European version of ceilidh dancing). The workshops are designed for all ability levels (including complete beginners). They feature a mixture of teaching, social dancing and live music. They’re running from 30 January to 27 March.
This is a hands-on introduction to storytelling, taking place on 2 February and based on the current exhibition Painting the Wonder Tales. This session is being run by Helen East and is ideal for anyone curious about storytelling. This is an ideal session to let our your inner storyteller and learn new skills.
