We have always received very positive feedback from our participants about Jordan’s work such as: making groups feel at ease with his approach; his energy; and the educational / artistic value in his work. He is a delight and pleasure to work with.
— Katie Mitchell, Creative Learning Officer, Royal Lyceum Theatre

My approach with all workshops and facilitation projects is to work alongside participants, inspiring them to take ownership of their work and encouraging development within their individual skillsets. I am experienced in working with large groups of varying abilities, and passionate about recognising potential within every participant.
