Workshop Delivery / Creative Engagement Education


'I was extremely impressed with Rose's smooth delivery and patience.  She is a gifted linguist with the magic spark to enthuse people with the love of her subject.'

Head of Art, Cathedral Academy, Wakefield​

I have worked extensively in creative engagement programming with children, young people and adults (including educators) for over 20 years.  I have delivered workshops in many schools and with Wakefield Theatre Royal's Creative Learning Network, the Huddersfield Literature Festival, The Hepworth Wakefield, Kirklees Council's Learning Services, Wakefield's Cultural Learning Forum, Canada's Prairie Theatre Exchange, and the University of Winnipeg's Explore Programme.

'Rose has not only worked as a facilitator but also as an artist

inspiring our students in her performance work. Her feedback and support with our school performances has been invaluable to both the students and the teachers, really making a different to the quality of the work.'

'Rose has a calm and sensitive manner and is able to relate extremely well to young people, staff and volunteers alike,

having a warm and engaging personality which quickly breaks down any barriers.

In addition, she has an excellent understanding of diversity and the need for inclusion.'
