Having worked with many different performers, directors and makers over the years and created a load of crazy shows, I have developed a number of different exploratory workshops to share what I have learnt and to further discover new ideas and techniques.

Every workshop has been carefully planned but can be adapted to suit different levels of experience and time scales.


Micro Cinema THEATRE

Live Camera and Performance workshop

Laboratory style masterclass for all theatre practitioners and video artists to explore and incorporate live low-tech video camera work with on stage theatre performance.

MMAM driveintitle

make a Mini ARTHOUSE Movie 

Film making workshop

With a nod to acclaimed Arthouse Movie makers such as Jan Svankmejer, The Quay Brothers, Maya Deren and David Lynch we will create our own unique low tech mini ARTHOUSE movie ready for the big screen, the small screen or even as a visual for any type of installation or performance.


The DARKER Side of Puppetry

Contemporary Puppetry and Performance workshop

What mysterious personas are our puppet friends hiding from us?


Acting the Puppet

Simple Puppetry Manipulation Skills workshop

Exploring the ways a puppet can walk, run and fall over, how it can apparently have feelings, reactions and even a sense of humour!


1-to-1 bespoke Making Sessions

Design and build a head or figure that is expressive, workable and robust. Examples could include clay modelling, plaster casting, puppet jointing and internal structures.
