Event Details

Level: Open

The Nursery is offering a series of 3 workshops under the theme “Forgotten Forms”, all taught by John Hildreth.

This workshop is “The Commando”- the classic, fast-paced longform that takes a new suggestion after every scene…inspired by the previous scene. This audience favourite should never be forgotten! It has spawned many fusion-forms.

This April 10 workshop will be 2 hours from 3-5PM UK Time zone.

There will then be immediately after a live-streamed show with participants from the workshop between 5-6pm UK Time zone on April 10.

This is an Intermediate workshop, 3 months+ of experience.

There will be 2 more Forgotten Forms workshops scheduled on May 8th and June 12th.
