for folks who want to tell stories...

People often tell us they’re itching to tell stories but they don’t know where to start. Start with us!

Toe Dippers sessions are aimed at everyone who fancies a go – no experience necessary, all experience welcome! Each session gives you the chance to play with this oldest and most fundamental human art – bring yourself, make connections (creative and human) and be surprised by what you take away after 90 minutes of exercising your imagination!

We explore the world’s traditional tales, with toe dippees who come from all walks of life and use the sessions to stretch their creativity to whatever end they please.

Alongside the Toe Dippers sessions for everyone, we also run Conflabs for working storytellers, and all sorts of fun stuff when we have one of our genius ideas. Here’s what’s on now…

Upcoming workshops

live or online

3 hours

for anyone who wants to tell stories


For this one-off, we invite you to find how a well-worn familiar story can jump to life, fresh, vibrant and spontaneous. This is the livest of live storytelling. Come and join us to tell a story mob-handed! We will send each person a tiny treat of a task in the week before, and let you know what story we’ll be mobtelling. Everyone is welcome – no special skills or experience needed. This is not a performance, it is just for those of us in the room.

This session takes place in a real life room. We limit numbers, and ensure plenty of ventilation and space. The venue has an accessible toilet and ramp. You can also get very good coffee, cake, meals and drinks in the cafe. There are a very few spaces left, so give us a wave if you want to join us.

More dates coming sooooon!
