MASTERCLASSES

 Term 2 2021

For our masterclasses we partner with talented creative artists, lyricists and writers to provide one day sessions for young people, Years 7 to 13.

Our masterclasses are held at libraries, schools and other venues across the region and open to pupils from all schools as well as homeschoolers. Our masterclasses are facilitated by experienced teachers and we provide clear health and safety plans. Your young writers will be in safe hands. Not in Canterbury? Check out our ZOOM Writers' Studio option

All classes run from 9.15 to 2.45pm unless otherwise stated. 

We are very grateful to Creative Communities Christchurch and Waimakariri for their support of our masterclasses.
