Jude leads workshops for Primary and Secondary aged students. Her workshops use drama and creative approaches to reach across the curriculum, especially the arts and humanities. Jude also provides non-curriculum based workshops. Activity is adapted for both inside and outside of the classroom. All workshops are there to support creative and academic development, whilst also building students’ skills in team work and an ensemble approach, confidence in their own voice and body, and belief in their own ability to achieve.
Jude’s passion and enthusiasm in arts facilitating lies in encouraging and nurturing a lively and active approach to subject matter in the hope of opening up a means of appreciation and enjoyment for the young people involved. She is an avid proponent of creative learning. Jude believes that all young people should be able to access and get the most out of the material they encounter and to gain confidence in their subject.
Jude uses creative approaches throughout workshops, including ‘on your feet’ practical activities, creative/artistic responses (e.g. physical theatre, creative writing) and reading aloud and spoken word methods.
I run a number of core workshops within the areas of English, literacy and drama. These can be adapted to texts, stories, practitioners, and so on, that students are working on.
Exploring Character/What is Character?
Classics on Your Feet!
Shakespeare: Just Do It!
Shakespeare Masterclass: Voice, Text, Body
Exploring Dialogue: Acting and Reacting
Crafting a Scene
3D Theatre: the Actor and the Audience
I run bespoke workshops, made-to-measure, according to students’ needs. These can be whatever they need to be. If you tell me what you would like, I will plan workshops appropriately. Examples might include: Ancient Greece, Shakespeare, fairy tales (Primary age); Jane Eyre, the Blitz, physical theatre (Secondary and Sixth Form age).
