Broken Silence

Spoken Word Workshops

“We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”
- Robin Williams as John Keating, from the movie Dead Poets Society

In the introductory sessions, participants will learn basic skills in spoken word poetry and will complete the workshop having performed their chosen poem in a safe, fun and supportive environment.

Bring a poem of yours or a poem you love & wish to perform!

Throughout the exciting and playful 5 week workshop, participants will craft their own work of poetry and learn how to perform it in a dynamic, friendly and empowering environment.

Participants will also have the opportunity to perform in public at a specially arranged event upon completion of the course & will receive a recording of their performance.

All skill & experience levels welcome! Suitable ages - 12 and up
Bookings essential & spaces are limited.

Advance Troupe (By invitation only) 
This class is for students showing the commitment to work within certain guidelines enabling them to extend their drama experience and skills.  It will be a class requiring focus and dedication and within these guidelines each student should have a fully rounded drama experience, still full of creativity and enjoyment but supported by focused behaviour and extended by more advanced scripts, monologues & movement.

'Try It Out” Weaving Day

For people who would like to try out rigid heddle weaving and don’t yet have their own loom, or people who want to get more comfortable with their own loom in a relaxed environment. You will weave a short length of fabric on a pre-warped rigid heddle loom, and finish with your own unique wall hanging or table runner.

These are small classes of 4 – 6 students. There are four places available in each class for students who do not have their own looms.

Note we will not go over warping a loom in this class; all looms must be pre-warped before the class. One-on-one tutoring is available separately for students who would like to learn warping.
