FRIDAY 21st July 2017
10AM-5PM
Central London (venue tbc)
£50 (+ BOOKING FEE)

Please note this workshop is limited to a maximum of 10 participants.


Masks are the ultimate permission giving tools. They allow us to tap into and unlock different parts of ourselves. They can help us to find different ways of moving, different ways of thinking and different ways of speaking. They can kick start our imagination, our creativity and get us back in touch with our natural spontaneity. They allow us to develop characters that are exaggerations or polar opposites of how we experience ourselves on a daily basis. They allow us to explore different parts of our personalities in order to get to know ourselves better and understand some of our foibles, projections and fixed self-images that keep us stuck. Best of all masks are a powerful, exciting and highly entertaining method of personal development.

This one-day workshop uses masks as a way of exploring different parts of our personality in order to meet and work with a variety of new characters in a variety of different situations including a mask based soap opera and improvised mask Ted talks!

Places will be limited to 10 attendees. No previous mask experience is necessary.




Steve Chapman has developed a particular method of using masks for personal development, combining ideas from gestalt psychology with exercises from improvised theatre and classic mask techniques. Steve has trained in mask work with the likes of Keith Johnstone (Loose Moose), Steve Jarrand (Trance Masks), Emily Gray (Trestle Theatre) and Russell Dean (Strangeface Theatre). Steve is Chief Adventurer at Can Scorpions Smoke Change and Creativity Limited and has worked with a wide variety of organisations and individuals helping them nurture their creative spirit and innovate in times of change. He is visiting faculty at Ashridge Business School and the Metanoia Institution. He spends the majority of his time not quite knowing what he is doing.
