Like pebbles worn by the sea into shapes of startling wonder, the folktales we all know are the legacy of centuries of slow growth, and generations of work and vision, by some of the greatest storytellers who have ever lived.

Most of the time we do not even know their names. Usually we never think about how they gave their tales the form in which we know them best today. But in the story of this long creative process, unexplored treasures and mysteries lie hidden as if in plain view. Familiar tales take unfamiliar shapes; chicanery, sheer genius, charlatanism, and chance all play a part in shaping and handing on the stories.

In this two-day course writer and storyteller Simon Heywood and Shonaleigh, storyteller in the Jewish women’s drut’syla tradition, take a practical, creative, and inspiring look at the hidden story of the tales we think we all know.
