Creative Learning

“Thank you for arranging the Stuff and Nonsense inset – it was amazing, we all loved it. Their time in school yesterday was fabulous too.” – Teacher at Prince Rock Primary School (Key Stage 1)

“The workshop with the children, who come from challenging and often turbulent backgrounds, was really positive. They were completely transfixed and absorbed in the puppets and it gave them an outlet to create really honest and free work. This is not something that they often achieve using other drama techniques.” – practitioner with Dare to Dazzle (ages 9-14)

“Having the chance to offer some quality work, tailored especially for F& EY and KS 1 was amazing! We need to do lots more of this work with Stuff and Nonsense!” – Education Producer, Theatre Royal Plymouth

All of our productions can be used as starting points for working with groups from ages 3+. Our skilled team of artists and performers offer workshops for school groups, families, youth drama groups and for adults that want to get creative too!

Choose one of our theatre-making participation activities to get creative with all ages in your venue, school or other location.

Sessions can be focused on:

  • Stories and character
  • Creative writing and drawing
  • Physical Theatre
  • Puppet-based work – using our puppets to explore using puppets in stories
  • Our bespoke Puppet Club to make your own puppets

If you are working towards a show and want to learn some skills towards it we can help with how to use or create puppets, performance skills or how to tell your story.

The company specialises in a child-centred approach, with company members trained by 5x5x5=creativity artist, Niki McCretton. Artistic Director of Stuff and Nonsense.
