Workshops for students and teachers

“There was constant laughter throughout and an increasing focus amongst my pupils as they realised how relevant the teachings of 'Told By An Idiot' are.  I think the pupils were sad when the workshop ended.”  


We deliver one-off workshops and longer projects at schools, colleges, drama schools and universities in London, across the UK and internationally.

We are passionate about designing and delivering participatory experiences for students and young people designed to foster openness, curiosity and play.

We work with children and young people aged 5 to 25 and we regularly collaborate with educational institutions to design workshops that are creative, practical and that enhance the curriculum.  

We often deliver workshops with the following themes:

Storytelling

Improvisation

Devising theatre 

Commedia

Clowning

Physical Theatre

Physical Comedy 

 

We also deliver CPD workshops for teachers and other practitioners working with young people. 

 

We are a proud Arts Award supporter and can offer workshops and opportunities to help students achieve their Bronze & Silver level awards. Click here to find out more.

“This participation work should be rolled out as an example of excellence...exhilarating and empowering”

 

“The students were all fully engaged – putting forward suggestions and experimenting with scenarios and improvising in groups. Talking to both the teachers afterwards they felt the students had gained a lot from this workshop in giving permission to ‘play’ rather than simply ‘rehearse’.”

 

“So many ideas that I can take back to my classroom!”
