After training in theatre, she worked as a director and drama practitioner before becoming a full-time storyteller.

About the course

Tamar works in a variety of different settings and locations, but she specialises in working in schools. She regularly gives storytelling performances and also runs storytelling and storymaking workshops for children of all ages and backgrounds. During lockdown, Tamar managed to continue her work with children, despite schools being shut. Working on a commission from Literature Wales, she developed a home storytelling kit for families to use during lockdown. The kit contains recordings of stories in both Welsh and English, as well as a variety of activities for parents to do at home with KS2 children to boost their storytelling skills, confidence and creativity.

With this in mind, she has expertly crafted a course designed to show teachers how to utilise storytelling in their classrooms, combining traditional storytelling and modern mediums to engage students in enriching storytelling experiences.
