Have you ever been hooked by a story that’s stayed with you forever? Made you laugh, cry?  

We’ve all got stories like that brewing inside. But here’s the thing – not everyone’s a natural-born storyteller. There’s a knack to keeping folks hanging on your every word.  It’s a skill. And without it, even the most epic stories can fall flat and drag on.

Learning to tell a story well is as important as the story itself. 

Enter Andrea Gibbs. Andrea isn’t just any storyteller; she’s a master, a storytelling sage. And with her at the helm, you’re not just attending a workshop; you’re set to uncover the most extraordinary stories you have. Stories that resonate. Stories you’ll love sharing.

Whether you’re just dipping your toes into storytelling or you’re a seasoned narrator looking for fresh inspiration, this hands-on workshop is your gateway.

BONUS: Dive into the art of storytelling with us, and we’ll treat you to an extra dose of inspiration. Each workshop participant will snag a FREE ticket to Barefaced Stories in Perth or Margs. It’s your chance to see storytelling magic live and get your own story synapses firing.

This workshop’s for everyone. Age 16 and up? You’re in. Whether you’re a storytelling newbie or you’ve got a backlog of tales itching to be told, there’s a spot for you.

So, if you’re curious about honing your storytelling chops, want to connect with some interesting characters, or just fancy a good laugh, this is your call. Spaces are tight – we’re keeping it cozy because no one likes to be lost in a crowd while they learn.

Ready to dive in? Let’s make those stories unforgettable.

What to Expect

Day One: Finding Your Story (Saturday 15 Jun, 10am-1:30pm)

It’s all about digging up that gem of a story you’ve got hidden away. Andrea’s got heaps of exercises that’ll help you find it, and trust us, you’re sitting on a goldmine.

Day Two: Crafting Your Story (Saturday 22 Jun, 10am-1:30pm)

Armed with your raw, authentic tale, Andrea will show you how to chisel away the superfluous, polish the rough edges, to present a masterpiece. She’ll offer one-on-one feedback to keep your audience hooked from start to finish.

NOTE: The workshop takes place over two sessions. There is a week break between sessions to allow students time to develop/refine their stories.  And also check out a show – participants get entry to June or July live show.
