Lovely to meet you & thank you for dropping by!
Based in Powys, Wales, I provide creative writing & drama workshops & classes, for all age groups & abilities to enjoy.
These can be regular groups (as are running with schools during term-time) or as one off workshops / short-term projects (most recently I ran a stand-alone workshop for the Abergavenny Writing Festival, with a focus on inter-generational reminiscence writing).
I plan & deliver workshops, classes & projects on a bespoke basis - anything linked to the creative written, spoken and performed word - so just get in touch with any query! I would love to hear from you.
What can I offer for learners?
- Encourages Creativity
- Improves Communication Skills
- Develops Self Confidence & resilience
- Provides Teamwork Experience
- Enables Self Discipline
- Builds Reflection & Evaluation Skills
And all while having fun, by working in a relaxed & supportive space. I strongly maintain that the most effective learning takes places when we are relaxed, and open. It happens naturally, organically...
