Celebrating 18 years of Inspirational “Hands On” Stage Lighting Workshops

Don’t take my word for it, here are some reviews by drama teachers. 

“This was one of the most exciting and innovative workshops I have ever seen. The students were entranced from beginning to end and are still talking about it. It was informative and entertaining, as well as excellent value for money. I would thoroughly recommend this to other teachers.   Every word sincerely meant John – thank you very much indeed. All the best for the new year,  Kind regards   Sue Ball Drama Teacher  Expressive Arts Department   Casterton Business & Enterprise College 

And from Ms Nancy  McClean   Head of Drama  The Royal Grammar School, Guildford 16th Nov “John’s workshop was the reverse of peeling away at onion layers, he literally built the “layers” of a theatre in front of our eyes and then using totally interactive techniques showed us the “hows and whys” of lighting.  This was learning that was digestible, kinesthetic, revelatory and fun!”    Thank you again for a fantastic day today.I felt it was pitched really well for our students.  I will certainly recommend you on to colleagues.
“A Sorcery with light! A fantastic, engaging workshop which introduced the students to stunning yet achievable lighting effects with generic lighting found in most schools. The workshop covered much more than just lighting and included set construction tips; set design considerations; Model making; Health and safety; Theatrical language/ cues and anecdotes. The whole workshop was backed by years of first hand experience which John has obviously gained in the profession and was delivered in a way which captivated the students and ourselves from the outset. I would recommend this workshop for any school, college or establishment staging theatrical performance or involved in developing technical theatre.”   Phil Bell, Teacher of Btec level 2 extended certificate in performing arts (Production), Melior community Academy, Scunthorpe. 11 February 13  I hope this goes some way to showing our appreciation for your time and skill. I look forward to working with you again soon.
