Workshops more information

  • Join dancers from Motionhouse in a creative workshop to learn all about physical dance-circus. Get the chance to explore the Motionhouse style and find out what it’s like to work for a professional touring company!
  • Join RSC Apprentices in an active discussion around what’s its like to be an apprentice at the RSC with Automation and Learning and National Partnerships.  Find out first-hand what the application process involves and find out how to apply.
  • n4t4 will be doing an informal collaborative drawing workshop, using drawing and doodling as a tool to explore ‘why art matters to you’. Each participant will be asked to draw a small piece of work which will then be connected to everyone else’s to make a larger collaborative piece, that develops organically, and hopefully promotes discussion. Participants will approach drawing in a fun, playful way, focusing on the experience of the process rather than the final result. The workshop will provide the environment to also discuss the values you place on art and its practice, your aspirations and how to develop these ideas into a viable art careers.
  • Escape Arts will run a workshop ‘Random Acts of Creativity’. We can often become comfortable working in our chosen or favourite creative medium. This drawing / visual arts workshop will take us out of our comfort zones and will use different methods, styles and materials to experiment and enjoy the process. Often we can surprise ourselves with a happy accident!
