Primary & Secondary School Workshops Primary Schools Workshops with Kinetika

Kinetika regularly works on schools-based projects and can offer a variety of fun and interactive workshops suitable for children at primary & secondary school level.

These workshops can include carnival costume-making, silk batik flag making, drawing or puppet-making all of which which can happen at our artist studios or on location at your school.

Examples of projects involving schools include the LDO Spring Festival where 300 children helped to design a 50m silk banner, and the Tour de France flag making workshops where local schools in Essex took part in welcoming the famous cycling event into the area.

All Kinetika artists working with children, or adults at risk, have an enhanced DBS check.

Higher Education & Work ExperienceLondonLDOArtistsphoto 4 (1) (Medium)

Kinetika continues to train its artists at any age, maintaining a high level of professional and creative development that allows the individual to grow as an artist.

Many of our freelancers started within Kinetika through one of our training programmes such as The Making of Mas Course. Most of these talented artists have then gone on to be employed by us full time and a few have even continued on to create or run their own successful companies.

We are often able to offer work experience and training opportunities for those at a higher education level or beyond. We cannot guarantee or specify when these opportunities arrive due to the nature of our work but if you wish to register your interest or inquire further do not hesitate to email us for more information:

Making of Mas Course

Kinetika has created an advanced carnival skills training programme called ‘The Making of Mas’. This programme is unique to Kinetika and we have successfully adapted it to the specific needs of communities and schools all across the British Isles – from East London to the Isle of Wight to Derby.

Many of our participants have been employed on our commercial projects such as Milan ExpoTeam GB Athlete’s Parade in 2012, FIFA World Cup Opening & Closing Ceremonies and more.

Whilst we are not currently running the ‘Making of Mas’ course, please contact us if you’d like a quote for running it in your area.

Volunteering & Opportunities

Kinetika continues to build a strong relationship with local voluntary and community groups in Thurrock.

We train walk leaders and stewards on projects such as Thurrock 100, and we often have opportunities for volunteers to help on our other projects, either in an artistic sense or to help during events to complement Kinetika team.
