I have designed and delivered poetry workshops in London and Yorkshire for children and young people between the ages of six and eighteen. I have also designed and delivered poetry workshops for adults for the Tate Britain, the London Metropolitan Archives and the University of Huddersfield.
My own workshops usually involve a combination of creative writing exercises and exercises and games to develop performance skills. Participants always write and perform a poem by the end of the workshop.
I am happy to design bespoke workshops to suit your needs. I have an enchanced DBS check from September 2014.
I also lead the story making workshops at the Ministry of Stories. You can find out more about this wonderful organisation here.
“Jemima is a fantastic workshop leader – she is well-organised, inventive and enthusiastic and quickly builds a great rapport with the children and young people. Her workshops are fun, well-structured and well-planned and her charismatic delivery ensures the children are engaged right from the start. I cannot recommend her highly enough.” Michaela O’Sullivan, Education and Outreach Manager at Square Chapel Centre for the Arts.
“Jemima is an enthusiastic, energetic and skilled workshop leader. When she leads our Storymaking workshops I know that the children will be encouraged and supported in their creative endeavours, and that the workshop will run smoothly. We are always keen to have Jemima on our facilitators’ team!” Vicky Price, Creative Learning Manager at the Ministry of Stories
“She helped me gain confidence in singing and reading in front of people…I learnt that you can express your feelings so many different ways in poetry” Year 10 student.
“I think we could have gone on for longer! They really got into it!” Year 6 teacher.
