Unlike Take away theatre company, Saltmine did have a small amount of information on their workshops but nothing that really told me what they do. The sketches they produce can be tailored to the needs of churches and schools and their workshops are very flexible. Allowing them to talk about all different subjects like, self esteem and trust or performance techniques and communication skills. However it does not mention any of the learning materials that they use.
Hobgoblin have different workshops depending on who they are showing their shows to. The drama workshops are for after the history productions, they are 60 minutes long, for 90 kids maximum and encourage the children to think about the themes in the show. The work shops include teaching the children warm ups, pair and group work, which lets the children watch and respond on their peers work.
They do another workshop called “the art of drama” where they are shown paintings and works of art and use them as inspiration for drama pieces. They create their own stories and also the story behind each character, these become short scenes in group work. The artwork includes paintings by Monet, Rembrandt, Manet and more.
The Take away theatre company had no information that I could find on the workshops they do. I did however email them and asked them myself, but I am still awaiting their response.
