The Work Room is offering 3 bursaries to members interested in attending MAKERS in January 2023.


MAKERS, curated by Rob Heaslip, is a Winter Intensive with some of the Scottish dance sector's foremost creative minds. Taking place at Dance Base, Edinburgh across January 4, 5 & 6, 2023, from 9am to 6pm, each day includes a warm-up class led by Steinvor Palsson, followed by two 3-hour workshops.

6 artists, 6 workshops across 3 days:

  • Jack Webb | Discover your flow, fall, your dancing in between the spaces.
  • Aya Kobayashi | Calligraphy - playing with texture and rhythms.
  • Farah Saleh | We will explore together ways to connect, expand and express through the sternum.
  • Marc Brew | An inclusive dance workshop drawing on Marc’s choreographic practice.
  • Rob Heaslip | Finding internal and external relationships within yourself and with others.
  • Solène Weinachter | Working with breath, voice, movement and pondering. 


The Work Room bursary will cover the participation fee (£60 per person for all 3 days), plus travel and access costs for 3 members.
