Feedback from previous participants:
‘Highly recommend to anyone in the arts who want to broaden their perspectives. I have taken away so many useful points from these workshops. They are definitely value for money.’
‘Facilitator Training has equipped me to work with confidence and enjoyment in a variety of settings.’
‘The session was practical and focused on getting me experiencing how I could use drama. Rather than telling me what to do, it engaged me so that my own thoughts developed. Perfect!’
