At The Knotted Project, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality creative learning activities to each & every individual we work with. We have a vast amount of experience working with an eclectic group of ages, abilities & backgrounds. Whether it is a group of Young Carers, professional performers, Youth Theatres or Children/Adults with Learning & Physical Disabilities, we firmly believe in the power & importance of creativity.
We believe that in a world of mounting pressure on young people & teachers, creativity is getting squeezed out of the school curriculum. Young people are being pushed towards academia & face tests & exams on a regular basis.
Mental and Emotional Health issues are on the rise & never before, has creative education & the arts been more important. Giving young people the chance to express themselves, blow off some steam & have some fun is essential & that is what we always hope we provide.
As physical theatre practitioners, we love to burn off some energy & have some fun.
Our sessions are full of games and challenges. We aim to upskill participants in creative techniques & disciplines, whilst learning how to make their own theatre & performances.
Our sessions can be tailored to meet the needs & targets of each group or individual. Our goal is always to promote self confidence in participants.
We are highly experienced facilitators & have directed creative learning projects & youth theatres for leading arts centres & venues including The Lowry, The Brewery Centre, Burnley Youth Theatre, & The Dukes to name a few.
We each have Full & Enhanced DBS Certificates & First Aid Training. As a company, we are also trained in Child Safeguarding & Arts Award Discover & Explore. We are based in Cumbria & regularly deliver sessions across the North West of England including Manchester, Blackpool & Lancaster.
