With over 15 years of experience, Ian is highly skilled at designing bespoke storytelling projects that meet the educational needs and aspirations of a particular school, as well as covering any key stage requirements that are requested.
Projects and sessions can be tailored to suit any age group, from nursery children to upper sixth form.
Activities can include:
- Thematic storytelling
- Story making
- Story performance (small group, whole class or whole school experience)
- Preparing to write
- Developing group dynamics through theatre skills
- INSET training for teachers in storytelling, drama and theatre techniques
Throughout his career Ian has had the privilege of working with a diverse range of groups and communities differing in age, ability and socio-economic background.
All projects and activities can be adapted to suit individual requirements and budgets.
He was truly inspirational. In a very short amount of time he encouraged small groups of children and adults to invent and tell their own local stories. A remarkable day and an absolute privilege to work with someone who can make all people believe in themselves and have confidence to tell stories.
