Spinning Straw into Gold: Becoming a Storyteller at the Library is a popular offering taught by Gay Ducey. Here are some comments from recent attendees:
"Everything was valuable - Gay is wonderful, I could listen to her forever."
"What I found most valuable was understanding the power of storytelling for different ages and learning techniques and strategies for learning to tell stories."
"What I found most valuable was the advice on learning stories. I enjoyed the metaphor about the storyteller being the vessel and letting the story itself take center stage."
"Make it longer. This is the first time in a long time I wished the day wouldn't end. It was fantastic!"
"It was all great! The best class I've ever taken!"
"This workshop was truly amazing. Gay's technique as an instructor was like a storyteller - My mind never wandered - the opportunities we had to try out storytelling today were very helpful and rewarding."
Openings are still available in Mountain View on June 24, but join the wait list for the other dates if So Cal works better for you - the wait lists help us know when to add more sessions (yes, we pay attention to them!).
