your Story out to play with Angela Lloyd
thought I'd share something great that happened. Last
night I told the story I worked with at Red House, and
for the first time in my life I was able to tell a story
by inhabiting it and telling the audience what I was
seeing instead of by trying to remember what comes next.
It was an amazing feeling and I owe it all to the process
at the Red House!"

Workshops & Professional Development
"The workshop space satisfies our longing for community.
It creates a place where we can explore the stories
we tell, see how they resonate with our lives, and consider
the audience we serve."
from K-12 teachers following a 3hr workshop after school:
recommend anyone to come see her.
She was wonderful, engaging, open and fun
I liked most about the workshop:
a gift that keeps on giving:
how to add yourself to any story
insights about storytelling
procedures for going deeper
Song, Sound & Music with Storytelling (2 hrs)
workshop will explore how music, song and sound informs
a story. We will address rhythm, aesthetics of accompaniment,
a spoon lesson, and folding one's favourite tunes into
storytelling programs. From Autoharp to washboard, we
will discuss the possibilities of sound beyond word.
Letting Go of the Book (1.5 - 3 hours)
Using the picture book as inspiration for free-style
This workshop will explore techniques for using picture
books as a jumping off place. The illustrations are a guide
for the spoken word. Tell us what you see! Storytelling
is a live event - we will address what it means to follow
your audience wherever they go. Participants are asked to
bring a familiar picture book to use in the small group
STORY: The Gift That Keeps on Teaching
(2 - 3 Hrs)
Children through Storytelling in the Pre-K - 8th Grade
an informal conversation for those who are currently
teaching in the classroom. Angela will share successful
projects conducted during a nine year residency at The
Walden School in Pasadena, CA. She will facilitate participants’
sharing of projects and ideas that worked for them.
To Our Senses: Bringing the Story to Life (2-3 hours)
workshop is geared to all levels of experience. Landscape,
events and characters are drawn closer when we use our
direct experience and palette of the five senses. "Hearing"
a place gives rise to "seeing" the place; "seeing"
the character could mean smelling his cologne. Making
our way to the heart of a story is a sensory experience.
Me a Story from the Book of You (2 - 3 hours)
Excellent choice for an evening family fundraiser.
tips and FUN for grownups to recall stories from their
lives. We will explore classic story structures for future
moments when only a spontaneous story will do. Whether
you are a parent, caregiver, counselor, librarian or teacher,
this workshop is geared to all walks of life.
As a storyteller I have benefited much from studying with
master storytellers: Laura Simms, Milbre Burch, Jim May,
Connie Regan Blake, Susan Klein, and Donald Davis. As
teachers they have been kin to the stranger found in folk
tales who asked, “Where are you going? What do you
have in your basket? How may I help you?”
