Tales of tricky trolls, clever billy goats, and a pancake that escapes from the pan! Stories from Norway and Sweden will be followed by a workshop for creating a puppet to retell the tales. Join storyteller Regina Ress and artist-educator Melkorka Helgadottir for our Saturday Storytelling on February 1st. All materials will be provided by Scandinavia House.
This event is appropriate for children ages 5+.
Saturday Morning Storytelling at Scandinavia House is supported by ASF’s Lynn Carter Fund.
ABOUT THE HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN STORYTELLERS
Since 1957, on Saturdays during the summer, New York City’s children have clustered around the Hans Christian Andersen statue near Conservatory Pond in Central Park to hear his and others’ fairy tales, folk stories, and stories told by a dedicated group of professional storytellers.
When the weather turns cooler, the Hans Christian Andersen Storytellers bring their tales to Scandinavia House.
