Holly's Workshops

Holly’s workshops are designed to be of benefit to both professional performers seeking performance skills training and the brave and curious seeking self-development. Through skillful holding and carefully paced progressions of games and exercises, Holly creates the ideal conditions that allow creativity, play, insight, wonder and discovery to thrive. 

Holly has been devising and delivering workshops for adults since 2007. She draws upon her huge history of training and experience in many areas, including: improvisation, clowning, fooling, dance, physical theatre, voice work, creative writing, dramaturgy, dramatherapy, mindfulness, playwork, group process, non-violent communication and laughter yoga to deliver bespoke, bountiful group experiences.  

If you are looking to book onto a course, Holly requests that all individuals begin with her Introduction to Clowning Weekend, as it provides a foundation for all her other training. See Intro To Clowning Workshop video here. Once you have completed this workshop, you will have access to all the other courses listed below through Holly’ s mailing list. 

If you are a company / individual artist looking to commission your own bespoke workshop, have a look at what’ s on offer and get in touch with Holly to begin co-designing your ideal workshop. Holly’ s workshops range from 2-hour play sessions to 10 day residencies.
