Throughout the morning Clare Viner presents 3 storytelling sessions for children based around the theme of the 4 elements, Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The sessions are suitable for primary aged children: 5-11 running at 9:30-10:15, 10:30-11:15 and 11:45-12:30.
Sidmouth librarian Carol Pentecost will run a craft session to coincide with the storytelling.
CLARE VINER trained in The Craft of the Storyteller in 2000 and has used these skills professionally ever since. She also has a degree in English and Drama and a PGCE. Clare’s book, The Emerald Dragon and other Magical Tales of the Blackdown and Quantocks Hills, contains stories from her days leading ‘Storywalks’ around these Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Clare says: “Stories shift, change and grow depending on the audience, the weather, how I’m feeling... it’s really a very precarious profession!”
