Fairytale Cookbook (Workshop) - Impro Melbourne

The Fairytale Cookbook Workshop is a unique and engaging way to bring the magic of creating stories into the classroom. Let Impro Melbourne expertly provide the recipe for your students to tell great stories. Using well-established fairytale archetypes as ingredients and classical story design as the method, your participants will understand not only what makes a great story, but also how to construct one themselves with their personal unique twists.

The elements introduced are Character Archetype, Character Description, Character Role and Classic Story Structure. By placing these elements in the form of a “Recipe”, the students absorb the learning quickly through direct engagement and practical application … and its fun ! The participants will build and perform their own stories in the workshop. More importantly, they will be able to take this understanding of story forward into the classroom and their own creative writing.

Linking to AusVELS levels F - 4, The Fairytale Cookbook Workshop encourages students to listen, respond, share ideas and think creatively. They will work individually and also as part of a creative team, exercising their personal and interpersonal communication skills.
