Storytelling with Wendy Shearer
Oral storytelling is one of the oldest art forms. All ages are captivated as they listen to a story. The teller creates and breathes new life into every word. The listener imagines and reacts, sharing emotions and finding new meanings. The story becomes yours to pass on.
Wendy Shearer is a London Professional Storyteller. She performs oral storytelling around the UK and internationally. Wendy tells stories at schools, family events and for older audiences. Her stories are drawn mostly from her Afro-Caribbean heritage with trickster tales of Anansi the spider for all ages and folktales from West Africa.
