Kitchen Sisters workshops in late May

Learn basic audio/interviewing from a radio rockstar. Details below.


Dear Friends,

Davia Nelson of The Kitchen Sisters is conducting another round of basic recording and interviewing workshops in San Francisco on Wednesday, May 26th from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and a second workshop from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The three hour workshop is for people who want to acquire and hone their skills for an array of projects: radio, online storytelling, oral histories, family histories, and other multimedia endeavors. Both workshops will cover the same information so please only sign up for one session.

We will cover miking techniques, sound gathering, use of archival audio, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to listen (which is harder than it looks), field recording techniques, recording equipment and more. The workshops are customized to fit the projects you are working on.

People who attend come from radio, newspapers, photography, oral history, historical societies, farms, music, writing, libraries, archives, filmmaking, web design and beyond. The groups are lively and good contacts are made.

The fee is $115. Of course, there will be a snack. The workshops are held in Francis Coppola's historic Zoetrope Building at 916 Kearny Street (at the corner of Columbus).

If you, or someone you know is interested contact us at and let us know which of the two workshops you would like to attend.

See you there,

The Kitchen Sisters
