We rarely run UK workshops as there is simply too much going on! You can however find us at WOMAD and at Tribal Earth, offering free beginner sessions at both. We have also been able to run small group workshops in people’s homes, get in touch if that appeals. Join our mailing list below to keep in the loop.
We will again be holding our annual workshop in the beautiful Aveyron, in the south of France. This time it will run Saturday to Saturday, 14th to 21st September 2024. Plus due to high demand we are running a second slightly shorter 6-day workshop from the 23rd to the 28th. Scroll on down for details. In Kafountine Senegal we hold a rolling open workshop and people come and go on dates to suit them as we are open for 6 months a year.
Teaching mixed abilities together works well and ultimately each player needs to find a place to sit and play on their own. At times people often pair up with others at a similar level or a more experienced player will offer to support a beginner – everyone benefits. Group work is supportive but it is a balance of individual tuition with a little group work. Language or lack of it has never been a problem, native English speakers are often outnumbered and communication somehow always works beautifully!
