As well as telling stories, Rab runs ‘Wonder Tales Workshops’ in which he uses the magical world of fairy tales and folk tales to boost the creativity, confidence and writing abilities of students. He has taught Irish, UK and American students in pre-school, national school, secondary and third level education.
