In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn string stories they can use right away in programs for children and youth. Anne travels the globe teaching string stories to even those who are “all thumbs.” String stories can be used in story time, puppet shows, after-school programming, and as a visual/kinesthetic link to literacy. All you need to bring is yourself and a sense of humour! No strings attached and no dexterity required! Hands-on, action-packed, fun and funny. Your shoelaces will never look the same! Anne intertwines multicultural tales with string figures from cultures around the globe. From Tokyo to Tofino and Burns Lake to Buenos Aires, Anne has spent years enchanting audiences and inspiring a generation with her unique string-stories. Don’t miss this chance to work with this polished entertainer and gifted, engaging teacher.

Anne Glover has made her living as a performer for most of her adult life. From Tofino to Tokyo, Hamilton to Honolulu, she enthralls audiences of all ages with her unique storytelling style and her unforgettable string figures. A natural communicator, Anne followed her love of languages and studied linguistics and languages at the University of Toronto, then Université Laval in Quebec City. She ended up teaching English as a second language to adults in Quebec, and happened into performing because she enjoyed telling stories to keep her students awake during class. When she moved to the west coast in the 1980’s, she widened her audience and began telling stories for children. She toured for several years with musician David Kaetz before finding her footing as a solo performer in 1998. Since then, she has toured extensively in Canada, the US, and more recently Japan and Hawaii.

In addition to entertaining in schools, theatres, festivals and folk clubs, Anne leads workshops and speaks at educational and parenting conferences. She has been a mentor to several teachers on the art of integrating storytelling across the curriculum.
