What’s Your Story? Workshop (Margaret River)

22 June @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm


Have you ever been hooked by a story that’s stayed with you forever? Made you laugh, cry?

We’ve all got stories like that brewing inside. But here’s the thing – not everyone’s a natural-born storyteller. There’s a knack to keeping folks hanging on your every word.  It’s a skill. And without it, even the most epic stories can fall flat and drag on.

Learning to tell a story well is as important as the story itself. 

Enter Andrea Gibbs. Andrea isn’t just any storyteller; she’s a master, a storytelling sage. And with her at the helm, you’re not just attending a workshop; you’re set to uncover the most extraordinary stories you have. Stories that resonate. Stories you’ll love sharing.

Whether you’re just dipping your toes into storytelling or you’re a seasoned narrator looking for fresh inspiration, this hands-on workshop is your gateway.

BONUS: Dive into the art of storytelling with us, and we’ll treat you to an extra dose of inspiration. Each workshop participant will snag a FREE ticket to Barefaced Stories in June. It’s your chance to see storytelling magic live and get your own story synapses firing.

What to Expect: 

Day One: Finding Your Story (Saturday 15 Jun, 10am-1:30pm): It’s all about digging up that gem of a story you’ve got hidden away. Andrea’s got heaps of exercises that’ll help you find it, and trust us, you’re sitting on a goldmine.

Day Two: Crafting Your Story (Saturday 22 Jun, 10am-1:30pm): Armed with your raw, authentic tale, Andrea will show you how to chisel away the superfluous, polish the rough edges, to present a masterpiece. She’ll offer one-on-one feedback to keep your audience hooked from start to finish.

About Andrea Gibbs: Imagine someone who lives and breathes stories. Someone who can sift through the mundane to find the magic. That’s Andrea. Behind Barefaced Stories, lighting up ABC radio, captivating TEDx audiences – she’s done it all. Andrea knows how to weave a yarn that sticks. She’s helped thousands shape their stories, from stage veterans to first-timers. And now, she’s here to help you.

This workshop’s for everyone. Age 16 and up? You’re in. Whether you’re a storytelling newbie or you’ve got a backlog of tales itching to be told, there’s a spot for you.

So, if you’re curious about honing your storytelling chops, want to connect with some interesting characters, or just fancy a good laugh, this is your call. Spaces are tight – we’re keeping it cozy because no one likes to be lost in a crowd while they learn.

Ready to dive in? Let’s make those stories unforgettable.
