Bulgarian Storytelling Workshops


Bulgarian traditional tales are rich, powerful, many-layered and almost unknown in the West. Workshops combine skills-learning with cultural content and with the exploration of some of the inner mysteries of the world of myth and fairytale.

These sessions explore storytelling techniques and processes at work with Bulgarian myths and folk tales. They are specially designed to meet individual requirement. Examples include:

  • Beginners workshops: participants learn a Bulgarian tale or tales and the basic techniques of good storytelling in a friendly, relaxed and informal atmosphere.

  • Workshops for those with some experience: Themes include
    Samodivi: Wild Women in Bulgarian Tales
    The Dragon's Bride
    The Use of Folklore and Ritual in Storytelling

Talks and Presentations


Talks and presentations are specially designed to meet particular requirements. Themes relate to Bulgarian tales, folklore, mythology and storytelling, and may be accompanied by demonstrations from members of the A Spell In Time team, if appropriate.
