1.) Introduction to Clowning Weekends

This is a 2-day foundation, which gently immerses you into Holly Stoppit’s world. If you like it there, there’s plenty more training to be had afterwards in the form of summer schools and weekly courses.

Read all about Introduction To Clowning here.

Holly will be offering an Introduction To Clowning Weekend every month this autumn:

2.) 8-week Inner Critic Inquiry, daytimes or evenings

Are you plagued by self-doubt, riddled with self-consciousness, fearful of putting yourself  / your work out there? Do you feel like your choices and your potential are limited? Would you like to feel braver and able to take more risks in creativity, work, love and life? Then this is the course for you!

This popular course will help you release the grip of your inner critic, through drama, writing and art.

3.) 10-week Clown to Performance course

This 10-week course builds on Holly’s Introduction to Clowning Weekend. ***You need to have completed Holly's Introduction To Clowning to get onto this one***

We'll playfully bring the group together in a full weekend workshop, before launching into 10 weeks of play and learning. Each week, we'll drop deeper into the state of clown, exploring ever riskier realms of authentic interactive improvisation. The course culminates in a clown show at The Wardrobe Theatre and a guided reflection session to extract your learning.
