A range of weekly classes are available.

Raven Drama continues to develop confidence and communication skills for those who can take part, at a time when they will need them more than ever!

Thursday mornings 10am / 10.45am / 11.15am ongoing: drama based sessions, held across three classes. Age based. £3 per session
Fees are voluntary - pay only if you can. Raven Drama is trying to ensure that the sessions are open to all students, whatever the circumstances. You are very welcome if you can make a class fee or not - please just book a place via class4kids (all classes are closed groups and run on Zoom)
LAMDA exams can also be prepared for (Zoom) with solo entrants (Acting / Verse & Prose / Reading for Performance / Speaking in Public).

It is lovely to meet you & thank you for dropping by!
Based in Powys, Wales, I provide creative writing & drama workshops & classes, for all age groups & abilities to enjoy.
These can be regular groups (as are running with schools during term-time) or as one off workshops / short-term projects (most recently I ran a stand-alone workshop for the Abergavenny Writing Festival, with a focus on inter-generational reminiscence writing).
I plan & deliver workshops, classes & projects on a bespoke basis - anything linked to the creative written, spoken and performed word - so just get in touch with any query! I would love to hear from you.
What can I offer for learners?
- Encourages Creativity
- Improves Communication Skills
- Develops Self Confidence & resilience
- Provides Teamwork Experience
- Enables Self Discipline
- Builds Reflection & Evaluation Skills
And all while having fun, by working in a relaxed & supportive space. I strongly maintain that the most effective learning takes places when we are relaxed, and open. It happens naturally, organically...
