Neil Griffith, the founder of ‘Storysacks’, ran two workshops for parents on story telling techniques in the morning. Whereas in the afternoon, 67 educators along with the staff of Malvern College Pre-School listened intently to Griffith’s insight into story telling.
Just some of his many story books…
The sessions included many fascinating practical tips and helpful demonstrations. Griffith held members of the assembled audience spell-bound as he acted out the tale of a mouse hiding a strawberry from a bear. He used a variety of techniques including, strong facial expression, emphatic hand gestures and articulation of interesting words. The groups were very happy to learn from Neil’s storytelling talent and experience!
