Owen Pilgrim's headshot

Owen Pilgrim is a storyteller and artist based in Fife. Owen has a deep connection with the outdoors and especially the forest, with an abundance of experience with running activities and events for children, with training as a Forest School leader. He runs story workshops with kids, learning how to tell stories and creative story-making, and combining exploring stories with making artwork. Owen has experience in telling stories in a variety of settings to many different age groups.

Many of the stories Owen tells are about the natural places and the places in between realms, the realm of mythology and the otherworld. Most of his stories are traditional tales drawing from Scottish and Irish folktales as well as Celtic mythology. He also tells stories from around the world.

Owen's other interest is in stories that give insights into how we live, how we treat each other and the world that we live in. Owen also has much experience in running workshops with adults in storytelling, story-making, and using stories in a therapeutic way. Owen sees stories, especially those of the mythological, as having relevance to seeing deeper into our selves and human nature. (Photo credit: Scott Jones)
