KINSHIP returns to Hebden Bridge in the Upper Calder Valley, West Yorkshire for the first workshop in the 2020 season! A 2 day weekend workshop, open for participants to join for one day or the whole weekend (priority given to those booking the whole weekend). Just as the pandemic has affected so many activities this year, we will run the workshop with some special alterations (outlined below) to help people feel at ease. To adhere to current guidelines, we will open 10 SPACES ONLY, allowing for 2 groups of 5 participants with a facilitator (Katye Coe or myself) for each group.
As before, our home-base will be at Wainsgate Chapel in Old Town, Hebden Bridge – home of Wainsgate Dances initiated by Charlie Morrissey and Rob Hopper.
Each group will work from Wainsgate Chapel studio for half the day, following current guidelines on social distancing, and providing individuals with options to distance further if needed. The other half of the day, we’ll head out onto the hills where we will spend the rest of the days with solo, partner and group practices in various locations across the area. The 2 groups will take it in turns to be outside or inside.
We will keep an eye on changes to government guidelines and adapt or adjust closer the time. Before the workshop there will be a detailed information email that explains the plan for the weekend.
10 PLACES AVAILABLE ONLY (the group will be split in two, allowing for 5 participants and 1 facilitator in each group)
WORKSHOP FEE: 1 day only: £40/ whole weekend: £70
-of which 10% of the net workshop fee will support a rotating charitable cause (more information HERE)
Approximate schedule: 11am-5pm each day
Accommodation (if required): Camping – there are 3 main campsites Hebden Bridge (Campsites will re-open from 4th July), Bed & Breakfast/ Air Bnb – please check guidelines and locally for re-opening information.
Please bring a packed lunch each day as there are very limited options close to the Chapel and we may also eat up on the hills.
