Impisi Workshop

What are the subjects that Impisi workshops can help with?

I will work with you to find out what issues are important for your school – disability; difference due to disability, ethnic background etc; friendship and working together; bullying; or Africa. Then I will deliver workshops that fit your timetable.

What is the shortest workshop you deliver?

I can come in for one lesson which would be a storytime session where I just tell the story in a way that is suitable for the age group or lead an arts activity based on the story.

What else can you offer?

I can tell the story as above but put aside some time for discussion, Q&A about the issues raised, mask making, animal movement, drama. I can help the school prepare to put on a performance of Impisi.

What is the cost?

Storytime workshops are £60, half days are £130 and full days are £250, plus travel over 10 miles from Ottery St Mary and art materials.

What Key Stages can you work with?

I will work with any Key Stage that you want me to work with and workshops can be adapted to deal with the issues you wish to look at. Impisi has many different layers in the story, from the basic story about animals though to in depth investigations into self image, prejudice, success and failure.

Will I need to prepare anything beforehand? 

This will depend on your desired outcomes or if the session is part of a longer term activity in your school. Please contact Clive to discuss this initially.

What class size can you work with? 

I am happy to work with one class or with specific groups of young people, up to 30-35 participants.

Are you covered by DBS and insurance?

Yes, I have an enhanced DBS certificate and public/professional liability insurance.

What else do we need to know?

The venue needs to be wheelchair accessible, support from teachers or learning assistants is required and information about any specific issues is very helpful.

Whereabouts can you run workshops?

Within about an hour of Ottery St Mary – the farthest towns would be Torbay, Okehampton, Crediton, Tiverton, Taunton, Yeovil, Bridport.
