We run highly practical professional development workshops across the year for theatre makers at all stages of their career. These workshops focus intensively on different aspects of Told by an Idiot's unique and collaborative approach to creating theatre.
To be the first to know about upcoming workshop opportunities and to take advantage of exclusive Early Bird offers, sign up to our workshops mailing list here.
We can also tailor versions of all our workshops to specific groups (including non-theatre makers) and settings and often design brand-new workshops in collaboration with other organisations, such as theatre companies, schools and universities.
Please contact Participation Manager Florrie Taylor if you would like us to deliver a workshop for you, if you have any questions or would just like to find out more.

In keeping with the accessible nature of our productions, we want to be able to include everyone.
We currently open up access to our workshops in three different ways:
Whenever subsidised or free places are available, they will appear on our Opportunities Page.
