Projects

We are delighted to be able to announce 5 workshops as part of our Toonspeak Recovery Programme from October – November 2020! 

There are changes to the format of these workshops from previous terms so please check the age limits / times / content before applying and contact us if you have any questions.  

Please note that participation in any online workshops can only be confirmed if we are in receipt of a fully completed digital consent form 

Or if you’re new to Toonspeak, please complete an enrolment form on the Join Toonspeak page. Not sure if you’ve filled in these already? please contact us

Participation in face to face workshops will be subject to specific Covid restrictions including social distancing and wearing masks, so it will be very different but definitely fun! Additional information can be found at the end of this post. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY CHANGES TO RESTRICTIONS / GUIDANCE OR ANY INTERNAL FACTORS MAY RESULT IN CANCELLATION OR CHANGES TO THESE WORKSHOPS

Projects:

  • Creative Calm : Monday – Thursday Primary 7 onwards
  • Toonie Makers : Tuesday Primary 5 – Primary 7 
  • Theatre Makers : Wednesday S1 – S3  
  • Word of Mouth : Wednesday S4 onwards
  • Theatre Makers Plus + : Thursday S4 onwards 

Please note a reduced capacity will be in place for all classes. We will therefore be holding a waiting list for each project – if there is demand for a class we will announce further opportunities if and when possible.  

To apply for a place on a workshop, please contact us on [email protected] or phone us on 0141-552-0234. We’ll then  be in contact with you to clarify what happens next.

These 1-2-1 sessions have been running since May 2020 and we are delighted to be able to continue them until the end of November 2020. Creative, informal check-ins on a weekly basis at a time agreed in advance between the participant and tutor. Originally developed to help with the strain of lockdown, these sessions use drama, music or art to allow you to find your own calm and creativity.
