I’m conducting a storytelling workshop this weekend at the British Library, Pune.
Every culture creates its own stories: to entertain young children, to teach them, and to attempt to explain the world. Through interactive storytelling, this workshop will give young children a glimpse of different cultures, allowing them to taste a little of the world!
It’s summertime, the best time to explore stories about summer and sunshine! Let’s travel to various countries, look at their costumes, and then imagine their stories. Children will enact the story with the storyteller, bringing alive the customs and traditions of each country we visit.
What comes after the summer? The rains in some parts of the world; autumn in others! Let’s recall stories of summertime and then look at how seasons change. Finally, the children will be given pictures to colour to conclude their journey around the world!
