We run a few different types of playwriting workshops for all ages. We find that playwriting works best as a series of workshops, with each session being dedicated to a different element of your play. We have experience in writing monologue plays, absurdist plays, dystopian plays, and plays based on novels and we are always excited to help you build new ideas. We also offer one-off playwriting sessions focused on generating either a short play or the start of a play.
We run a variety of poetry workshops for attendees from ages 3-123. Our workshops, which can be either facilitated or led depending on their context, include exposure poetry, ekphrasis, cut-and-stick poetry and collaborative writing. At the very least, by the end of our workshop you will have written a poem that you are proud of and you will also have had the opportunity to perform it to the group (but only if you wanted to).

In our performance workshops, we will work with you to play games and create a performance that you are proud of and confident to perform. Some of our workshops focus on specific types of theatre like absurdist, Brechtian or Artaudian theatre whilst others will be script based, and others will be work towards creating a devised piece. Regardless of your age, we guarantee laughter and snack-breaks.
Our making workshops are centred around performance. Most of them fall into the categories of mask-making or puppet-making but we’ve also facilitated design-a-monster workshops and we’re looking at setting up some set-design workshops. We are dedicated to using recycled and recyclable resources. Our making workshops will often be followed-up by performance workshops, using the masks or puppets that you have made.
Our movement workshops vary from physical theatre to circus skills, and from one-off skill-based workshops to series of movement workshops leading up to a performance. As with all our workshops, these are not limited by age or ability.
