Presenter Information:

Tanya Batt & Peter Forster – Storytelling in the Preschool Classroom 

Storyteller & children’s author Tanya Batt and musician Peter Forster hail from planet Waiheke – a small but lovely rock off the eastern coast of Aotearoa, New Zealand. They love singing, riding their bicycles, planting trees and creating wonderful musical ‘story sandwiches’ – preferably all at the same time! Their sessions are highly interactive, filled with movement, music and magic. The Story Sack – Storytelling and story making Long ago before time was caught and put in clocks and magic was easier to find there was story. “You mean like a ‘book story?” No I mean like a story-story.Like one you might catch on a long line of truth, or like a cold from your great, great grandmother. Don’t you remember some one telling you a story? Explore the ancient art of storytelling made new again. Tanya Batt will share her experiences of storytelling, story making and story sharing. Lots of love and laughter and happy ever afters. Tanya Batt – Storyteller Tanya Batt is a self confessed story-o-phile and frock-o-holic. Hailing from Waiheke Island, Aotearoa, New Zealand she is a green fingered witch, a word warbler and story stitcher who channelled her childhood propensity for talking and her love of dressing up into a real ‘imaginary job’. Stories have put food on her table and a roof over her head for more than a quarter of a century enabling her to share her work in over 20 countries. She is the creative director of the ‘Once Upon An Island Charitable Trust’ that uses storytelling for community building, environmental and cultural education. Peter Forster – Musician Peter is a versatile musician, composer and instrument maker who plays a variety of instruments. He builds guitars and wooden flutes, and is currently making a cello. Peter is passionate about the healing power of music and singing, and is known to burst out in Mongolian overtone chanting at times!
