We have a fantastic line-up of workshops and healing sessions for you at Elementary 2016 this year. We have listed the highlights below and our provisional timetable showing days, locations etc. can be found below also. Please keep checking back as this is being added to all the time.

None of our workshops operate booking systems so just turn up at the right time and in the right place or the practitioner will mingle with the crowd and let you know the details personally (see below). We don’t charge for workshops at Elementary, but should you wish to show your appreciation for the artists who work hard for you, then there will be a hat in the corner for you to pop your donation into. Times may be subject to change.


Zalem Didgeridoo workshop Our Friday night didgeridoo soloist will be running a 2hr workshop: Didg´n´Beatbox:
“Human beatbox,” the art of making music only with the mouth can be mixed with the didgeridoo.Beatboxing and wobble breathing, incredibly increases musical possibilities while developing the player’s creativity, sense of rhythm and muscles of the mouth.  


Chris Puleston Drumming workshop – Saturday & Sunday @ 5pm. An exhilarating and uplifting African drum workshop by one of the leading percussionists in the UK. Chris supplies a large number of djembes and percussion but please feel free to bring along your own instrument.
