Hamlet- Creative Arts Workshops

…that is Josie’s question!

Last Saturday, and for the following two, Josie is at King Edward’s Girl’s teaching drama in the school to year 5 and 6 Gifted and Talented students about Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Last Saturday the group learnt the general plot line and created some still images and family portraits of the main characters.

The group took a strong disliking to King Claudius and seem excited to continue learning about his evil ways over the next two weeks.

During my research for the workshops I found this Hamlet archive and think it might be useful for anyone studying the play.
