HOW TO MAKE UP STORIES
A STORY PLAY MASTERCLASS FOR PARENTS & EDUCATORS
Once upon a time ... there was a grownup who wanted to make up stories for and with their little one.
Wonder-filled stories that captured their imagination, their attention and their heart. Stories that helped them problem solve a worry, learn about their world or simply a story to make them giggle and feel loved.
We can help with all of that!
WHAT THIS MASTERCLASS CAN OFFER YOU:
DISCOVER the magic of 'story seeds' as a way to inspire your own creative ideas and as a tool for collaborating on improvised stories with young children.
GAIN a practical understanding of how to use props, puppets, simple instruments and recorded sounds to support story experiences.
EXPLORE the dynamics of your voice and how to effectively use vocal tone, colour and expression to share stories that engage, inspire and delight.
DISCOVER the secret powers of your physicality (gesture & movement) as a storyteller extraordinaire.
PRACTICE the art of asking the right questions to encourage child-led and collaborative storytelling.
UNLOCK your own innate creativity and confidence to craft story play experiences that are responsive and wonder-full.
WE ALL CARRY THE SEEDS OF A WONDER-FILLED STORY WITHIN US

"“Nadia Sunde is the most intuitive storyteller that I have had the pleasure to meet.
The children's shrieks of laughter were a delight to me and the teachers,
and all done with a sock and a teapot!
Nadia, Houdini like, got a child who does not speak, to become a part of the storytelling. His teacher and I couldn't believe what we were seeing. She's the benchmark that everyone else needs to aspire to.”
