Winter Workshop: Crafting Stories from Nature

January 15, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$35 – $45

We are all a part of the natural world and our lives are profoundly affected by nature. The natural world provides a common meeting place as well as a source of inspiration for storytellers. Elliott will demonstrate how one can craft stories celebrating our human connection to nature by incorporating personal experience, family reminiscences, folklore, natural history, traditional mythology and humor. He will also give hints as to how one can incorporate dialogue and dialect into a story and help participants develop their own stories. Participants will be provided with pens and notepads for note-taking.

Cost: $35 for museum members, $45 for non-members. Some fees apply.

Location: Meeting Room of the Guest House, Christmount Christian Assembly, Black Mountain, NC (registrants will receive driving and parking directions ahead of time).

Covid Protocol: All events are in person and will take place indoors. Participants are required to wear masks covering the nose and mouth and to distance during the event. Anyone experiencing symptoms of covid-19 or experiencing a possible risk of exposure is asked to stay safe and stay at home!

Cancellations: If the event is cancelled due to inclement weather, attendees will be notified of a replacement date. In the event of a full cancellation, attendees will receive a refund.
