We love the power of words, so we've got a whole range of enjoyable and engaging Poetry workshops - for pupils of all ages to enjoy. Our workshops include in-person sessions, as well as live streamed workshops beamed straight into your classroom - and resource packages which allow you to host your own whole-school poetry day.

Longer workshops will also see pupils gaining experience in presentation skills as we support them in exploring the most effective ways to deliver their poems vocally. We can also provide a Poetry assembly to kick-start your poetry day in school! Our poetry workshops are available throughout the school year - and can be adapted to suit any theme or text, connecting literacy right across the curriculum.

In Autumn 2020, LAStheatre toured their outdoor theatre production into schools and had a great response from classes in Reception to Year 3. Teachers called the show: “inspirational”, “Year 1 absolutely loved it, even children who I thought might struggle, got closer to the stage as the show went on” and “A great opportunity at a difficult time, great for everyone’s wellbeing.”   As lockdown eases again, LAStheatre are returning to their converted outdoor caravan theatre to bring a new high-quality live theatre production into schools, whilst using the power of theatre to open discussion and encourage conversation.   This July, LAStheatre will be touring our production, ‘The Rascally Diner’ to primary schools in Liverpool. Based on the book ‘The Rascally Cake’ by Jeanne Willis and Korky Paul, this fun-filled theatre production with songs and silliness is all about food, food choices and the environment for Year 2 - 6.   Please get in touch with Liz to discuss bringing this joyous production into your school this summer term.   If the cost of the show is prohibitive, please get in touch with us about our available bursaries.

Each spring term, we give year 12 students the opportunity to publicly exhibit their work.
Students chose themes and voted on Dreams, which has allowed them to explore the concept in any way, shape, or form that they wish (including Nightmares). Students from each creative subject have made outcomes based on this theme, which means that students in more than one subject have the challenge of making diverse responses!
Students have been able to explore themes of horror, imagination, escapism, and imagining ideal possibilities. We have really enjoyed seeing how students’ responses are so personal, and this will also be an opportunity to develop more personal work for their portfolios, whether for university applications next year, or creative careers.
We hope you enjoy them too!

Storybarn on the Road workshops focus on reading for pleasure and feature a lively, exciting mix of interactive reading sessions, participation games, use of imagination and idea-sharing, all designed to help encourage a love of reading outside of the educational framework. In response to the current climate, our Storyhunters will focus on using Shared Reading to improve wellbeing. Using a great selection of stories and fun exercises, we’ll explore how we communicate, and discuss emotions and the importance of kindness. We hope our sessions will help children with their transition back into the school environment and with their interactions as individuals and groups.

The workshop series by Liverpool Biennial, "The Stomach and the Studio", invites participants to meet the artists of Liverpool Biennial 2021. Take part in this digital workshop with Teresa Solar to find out more about her public sculpture project for Liverpool Biennial 2021 and get creating with her! Join artist Teresa Solar to create your own hybrid designs, science fiction stories and surreal drawings. For young people in the age range of GCSE to Undergraduate level (ages 14-19), this series of creative workshops and presentations are aimed at those beginning to develop their creative routes (or anyone that enjoys getting creative!). This will be no boring lecture: we want to get right into learning from an international artist, creating individually and allow participants to share ideas with each other. The Artist will briefly: - Introduce Liverpool Biennial, the festival and how we work with international contemporary artists, collectives and practices. - Introduce Teresa Solar's practice, project for Liverpool Biennial 2021 and the journey she has taken to have a creative career. - The artist may then discuss with participants their own ideas of what they are interested in, or currently doing and offer thoughts and advice. - The artist may give examples of what they were doing when at a similar age and advice or skills they wish they had. The Workshop will: - Be a creative exercise in doing, making or thinking that will teach the young people more about the host artist’s practice. - Create an opportunity for the attendees to develop either a skill, an idea, a process or even just time to think in a creative way. The overall session should leave the attendees with either some things to think about, to do, to question, to see and respond to in their personal creative journey, whilst being an engaging and interesting experience for young people of the city of Liverpool and beyond.

For young people in the age range of GCSE to Undergraduate level (ages 14-19), this creative workshop is aimed at people beginning to develop their creative routes. Liverpool Biennial 2021, The Stomach and The Port, takes the curatorial approach of 'Kinship' - the bonds and relationships which connect us to our families, the community and beyond, to include the wider world of nature and technology. The workshop will unpack this idea of Kinship through perspectives of those working with Kinship in their values and will take place on 2nd June from 4pm to 6pm. Phosphoros Theatre group work with, as and for asylum and refugee communities through the medium of theatre and drama. They will produce a workshop bridging the international contemporary practices of the Biennial to these communities and values. The Workshop will:
  • Be a creative exercise in doing, making or thinking that will teach the young people more about Phosphoros Theatre and The Stomach and The Port.
  • Create an opportunity for the attendees to develop either a skill, an idea, a process or even just time to think in a creative or contemporary way.
The overall session should leave the attendees with either some things to think about, to do, to question, to see and respond to in their personal creative journey. Please click here to find out more and book a place.
