Workshops

Classes are held in our workshop nestled on the edge of Cannock Chase. Within the classes children are taught workshop safety as well as how to use specialist equipment, tools and machinery. Members will also learn teamwork and communication, along with a whole host of new skills required for working backstage.

Members do not need any prior experience or training and are encouraged to book a trial session. “Paint clothes” or something you can wear that is ok to get dirty will be required as well as suitable footwear.
