EASKEY BRITTON PRESENTS: A Creative Storytelling workshop for women


Give expression to who you are – freely and truly without expectations.

4 hour skills-based workshop  including supplies/materials


Born from a desire to give voice to the hidden parts of who we are and celebrate each others stories. This workshop provides a safe and trusting space that gives us permission to step out of the box and find strength in our vulnerability. It’s about how we might challenge some of the stories we live on a daily basis that we fail to question.

 We will work with a creative and visual process of authentic exploration and expression using mixed-mediums (drawing on my own experiences with working through fear, ideas and creative blocks). The format is non-digital, but provides tools and processes that could be translated into digital form. In essence, "how to find your story before you even start making it / telling it"


Who is it for?

No experience in storytelling is necessary. If you feel you have no experience with storytelling, or you are a writer / film-maker / public speaker who feels 'stuck' and interested in a more creative approach or you simply want to develop a self-reflective practice - this is for you.


 Saturday, April 22nd,  9.15am - 1pm at The Model, Sligo

Please note, this is a women-only workshop. Admission is €25 per person
