Monthly Masterclasses

Led in partnership with New Work Associate Tom Wright and a series of professional writers and theatre makers, these monthly workshops are open to anyone, at any point in their writing and theatre making career, who lives, learns or earns in Brent and North West London. Sessions are designed to enable attendees to develop their creative skills, network with peers/Kiln Associates, watch productions at Kiln and support career development 

Connect with other local theatre makers and develop your practice at our free monthly drop-in masterclasses. For theatre makers aged 18+ who live, learn, or earn in NW London.

“These masterclasses are really useful and valuable for someone like me who has recently moved to the UK […] They are easily accessible and have given me deep insight and knowledge about different subjects related to my field. […] I am very grateful to Kiln Theatre for creating a space for holding these masterclasses.” Participant feedback
