SHORT COURSE: The Trickster

SHORT COURSE: The Trickster

The Trickster ~ ways to survive these treacherous times ~ with Ashley Ramsden and Stella Kassimati.

We have never needed Trickster as much as we do now.

The Trickster is your survival energy, the trickster knows every loophole, trickster cannot be tied down.

Creator, mischief maker, boundary breaker, Tricksters think on their feet.

In this workshop we will put you in touch with that part of yourself that you may have forgotten. We will supply you with some trickster tales to tell and the craft you need to bring them to life.

Storytelling experience is beneficial but not essential.
