Clown teacher comes to Edinburgh for the first time

Explore what it feels like to put judgement to one side and develop the confidence to follow your impulses, turn up your curiosity, play more and connect deeply and authentically with yourself and others.

Holly Stoppit has been delivering clowning workshops for adults in Bristol, South West England & Wales, for more than a decade. She is incredibly excited to be bringing her Introduction to Clowning weekend to Scotland for the first time ever this October.

Holly Stoppit grew up on the road with her family’s circus-theatre company, Arts Play Umbrella, performing and delivering circus-theatre workshops all around the UK. She started directing devised performance in her 20s, and soon after that started teaching clown classes to people from all walks of life. Holly’s deep fascination for the transformational potential of creative process led her to study for an MA in Dramatherapy. Now she combines her skills to playfully nurture clowns and fools in all manner of ways.

The Introduction to Clowning is a 2-day workshop which gently immerses you into the state of clown, where everything is possible and nothing is quite as it seems. The workshop will be at St Margaret’s House in Edinburgh, 19 & 20 October. Apply by 13 September.

“A masterclass in being human.”

“It’s about getting in touch with your internal playful child self, getting creative and having fun but doing so mindfully, so you look after the bit of you that could feel vulnerable/shameful in being so daft.”
