So, yes, I’ve been a bit quiet again. For over a year in fact. This was because I was rying to get a qualification as a cabinetmaker and it took more energy than I could spare to do anything else.
I finished the course in February (and carved a Celtic knot into the box I made for my final project) and was diagnosed with Asthma which means I probably can’t work in a normal carpenters workshop, so the Job Centre is checking this with the doctor to see if I’m officially not able to be a carpenter, and therefore need retraining, and as with most government offices, this is taking a while.
So after being sensible for the last few years I decided to use the time to do something ‘silly’, or to put it another way, something I really wanted to do but was always told was silly.
I decided to try being an oral storyteller.
After much encouragement from an established English speaking storyteller in Germany, I put a show together, called it “A great British Evening” and made some posters, which is where this blog post gets back on topic, finally:
Oh, and people turned up. And enjoyed the evening. So not I’m working on a second show which will need a poster, and some other bits and pieces, which will also need more drawings.
I’ll post the relevant ones here…
