Slate Barn Arts deliver workshops and classes that help develop a greater understanding of what we are, and what we can be as human beings. This is developed through the optimisation of our physical, mental and spiritual capacity for play and creativity.

Workshops and classes are offered that develop and explore the craft of the actor, both individually and within an ensemble; both personally and within the broader community.

Slate Barn offers an inspiring natural environment for creative learning.
