Workshops for schools and teachers

We deliver workshops and projects at schools, colleges, drama schools and universities up and down the country, and design participatory experiences for students and young people designed to encourage creativity and discovery. Our workshops and projects are suitable for Key Stages 2 – 5 and higher education groups.

 

Topics we cover in our workshops include:

 

Storytelling

Improvisation

Devising theatre 

Commedia

Clowning

 

We are also a proud Arts Award supporter and can also offer workshops and opportunities to help students achieve their Bronze & Silver Arts Awards. 


If you are a Teacher, University or Drama School practitioner we can work with you to create a bespoke Idiot workshop for your students tailored to your teaching objectives – to book a workshop for your students or to discuss a project or creative idea please contact Participation Manager Amanda Castro on amandacastro@toldbyanidiot.org

 

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

 

“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.”  

 

“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!”
