Workshop Options

New Non- Camp Schedule

 

Reflections on this NOT CAMP TOUR 2013

TWO WORKSHOPS WERE HELD ON THE ‘NOT CAMP’ SCHEDULE:

Thursday 7/18 & Monday 7/22,

both at Kalama Beach Park, 1-5pm

They were not public events. Invited participants joined the storytellers

after writing asking to be included. The Workshops were for and by the tellers to teach each other. Great fun!

Learn how to twist and pull a string into simple shapes to tell a simple tale, captivating and charming despite this simplicity. Also a ‘strategy’ to insert string into tales you know. All in 40 minutes!

KAMISHIBAI- Masako & Tomoko

This was a popular in Japan before World War II: itinerant vendors on bicycles would ride around villages telling stories using pictures to kids, and then they would sell candy.

NOTE FROM MASAKO 7/10/13 I know your opinion about Kamishibai box- heavy! But…today,we talked about it, and decided that We will bring the lightest kamishibai box which Toshiko has, and Tomoko WILL bring it. Tomoko said, “I am a strong woman ! I’m not afraid of any heavy things! I can do it!”……Hurray! I imagine your sigh …then, smiling…and clapping!!!

    Oh…This sounds like so much fun!
    Wish I would have known–just bumped into this website this morning.
    Perhaps you will do this again next year? I would love to come.
    I used to work in preschool (many years ago now) on Oahu, back in the 80s.
    I would often sit under the shade of the Banyan tree at the preschool….and tell or read stories.
    One day, when the children were outside playing, a young boy ran up to me and asked, “Could you please read me another story?”
    I answered, “Sure. Let me go in and get some books.”
    He frowned at me and said, “No…not those! Read the ones about when you were little. You know…the stories that have no books.”
    I found out later that this is called “Talk Story” in Hawaii.
    It was that young boy’s comment, over 25 years ago now, that eventually gave me the idea for my current website — “Storieswithnobooks.com”
    Now I live in Virginia and come back to Oahu from time to time, because I miss it so much.
    A few years ago, I came during the month of October and heard some wonderful ghost legends and stories from all around the world. The storytellers were so animated. It was absolutely wonderful. Perhaps they were part of your group?
