We are holding our annual week-long workshop in the beautiful Aveyron, in the south of France, in September. Scroll on down for details. I’m afraid this year we have decided it is simply too complicated and uncertain to arrange one in the UK but will be back in 2022! In Kafountine Senegal we do not hold group workshops in the same way, we don’t have set dates – people come and go on dates to suit them.
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!
