From The Hearth – Workshops and Tutorials

Do you have an ancestor whose story needs to be told?

Does your memoir contain the creative flare that it deserves?

From The Hearth can help you turn remnants of memory into vibrant life-stories, leaving a legacy for future generations.

From The Hearth aims beyond the notion of ‘best-seller’. Instead, it recognises the value of recording the countless lives that make up our collective human story.

Today, when the tradition of sitting around the fire or the kitchen table to tell stories of our ancestors has all but disappeared, From The Hearth promotes the idea that no one is more eligible than kith and kin to write about their own bloodline, arriving, as it will, from the heart. Please turn to our Workshops and Tutorials page to learn more.
