Spare Tyre also led workshops. These ranged from short taster workshops of a couple of hours, to day or weekend-long sessions. Workshops comprised of games and improvisation exercises, leading on to devising songs and sketches relating to issues experienced by the participants. They worked with a wide range of groups from women’s refuges and youth clubs, to the elderly in residential care.
‘Spare Tyre’s workshops aim to encourage and enable people to find new ways of expressing their experience through drama and music. The group will feel able to take risks in order to achieve the immense satisfaction of an idea performed or a song composed.’ (Publicity pack)
