Libraries NI Yarnspinners

Libraries NI Yarnspinners

Libraries NI Yarnspinners are regular storytelling events supported by The Armstrong Storytelling Trust which take place in various libraries on a monthly basis. The original monthly Tullycarnet Yarnspinners has been running continually for 31 years but now five additional storytelling clubs have started in Bangor Carnegie Library, Lisburn City Library, Dungiven Library, Keady Library and Lisnaskea Library.Chair

Yarnspinners meetings provide the perfect opportunity and platform for new storytelling talent to share traditional stories and yarns in the company of professional storyteller and Libraries NI Storyteller in Residence, Liz Weir MBE.

Throughout the yearly programme, participants are given the chance to listen to and learn from a diverse mix of guest storytellers who have been honing their craft for many years and also from storytellers who are only starting out.

Everyone is welcome to come along, see below for details of the upcoming Yarnspinners events taking place via Zoom.
