Your Library in Healesville will launch a weekly learning workshop for all ages soon.

Creative Storytelling aims to teach people how to craft their own five to seven minute story using art supplies to make it fun and easy.

Professional storyteller Cora Zon and cartoonist Danny Zemp will host the session.

Ms Zon said the new workshop is building on the zine making workshops that she held at the Healesville Library last year.

“It’s gonna be fun and exciting and help people tell their personal stories and write their memoirs,” she said.

“It’ll help people in public speaking and give them confidence as well.”

Mr Zemp said the session will bring people’s life story.

“It’s about helping in mental health to write down what is important in their life in a safe and noncontrolling environment,” he said.

“Sometimes, it’s important that people can tell their story to let go of what bothers them. They need to write it down, draw it or put colour to it, which either way works in order to get that story on paper.

“What we try to do is give them feedback on what is good and what can be improved.”

The opening session will be held from 10.30am to 12.30pm at the Healesville Library on Saturday 20 April.

Afterwards, it’s going to be on every Thursday from 4pm to 6pm.
