Discover the magic of traditional oral storytelling with Fife storyteller Sheila Kinninmonth of Homespun Tales.
Sheila will tell us two original stories in a fresh and fun way, with plenty of opportunities to join in, have a giggle and help the story along. In this session, we will hear the Scottish folktale The King’s Tailor, followed by a Welsh story, Slops.
Discover the magic of stories from all over the world told in the true tradition of oral storytelling – “eye to eye, mind to mind, heart to heart.” (traveller proverb)
Born and brought up in Fife, stories and storytelling have been part of Sheila Kinninmonth’s life for as long as she can remember. While she has a wide repertoire of traditional stories from all over the world covering many topics and themes, she particularly loves telling Scottish Folk and Fairytales, in Scots when appropriate. With a background in early years education, she believes storytelling is a vital learning tool for all children, not only helping meet many Curriculum outcomes, but also passing on our rich heritage and culture.
This event is the first of two told “straight frae the mooth” that promote a positive sustainability message. Why not sign up to the second session on the 7th February?
