Educational Resources

Storytelling is an effective tool that can be used across the curriculum, not just in English. Here you will find tried and tested resources that will work in your classroom, They can be easily adapted for small or large groups and many are equally suitable for home educators.

The Museum

Bertilak and Morgan at University Centre Shrewsbury, Guildhall

Mythstories collects beautiful objects from around the world that can be used to tell stories, and commissions new storytelling objects from skilled artists and craftworkers. The collection can be seen in the halls and corridors of University Centre Shrewsbury's Guildhall campus. Our large library focuses on traditional tales and their uses. You are welcome to come, read the volumes and view the objects during University public opening hours.
