Several times a year, we hold interviewing and recording workshops at our offices in San Francisco and Santa Cruz and at universities and organizations across the country.
Our workshops are designed for people who want to acquire and hone their skills in an array of audio projects-–radio, online storytelling, oral histories, audio slide shows, family histories, news, documentaries, podcasts, and other multimedia platforms.
The workshops cover interviewing, miking techniques, sound gathering, use of archival audio, field recording techniques, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to build a story and how to listen (which is harder than it looks).
The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are working on. People who attend come from radio, film, multimedia, newspapers, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, farms, music, writing, libraries, archives, web design, detective agencies, restaurants, health care organizations, and beyond.
If you would like to attend a future workshop or if you’d like to bring The Kitchen Sisters to your organization contact us here.
