Songwriting for Voices

a workshop for 12 women with Helen Chadwick
15 July 2022 to 17 July 2022
Hawkwood College, Stroud

This will be Helen’s fourth songwriting workshop at Hawkwood on creating harmony songs for unaccompanied voices, small groups and choirs. We will create alone and collaborate with others to share what we make with the group, noticing and collating an array of forms and structures as we go. Starting with quick-fire writing and composing activities we will move towards creating whole songs.

A willingness to play and just go for it without stumbling over too much self criticism is a key element of this course(because editing comes later, after creation)! The group can become an ongoing songwriting circle for those who wish.

Please bring a notebook, something to record yourself on (or even two things).

Arrival and registration on Friday from 4.00 pm with tea. The retreat begins with supper at 6.30 pm and ends with afternoon tea at 4.00 pm on Sunday.

Residential options are fully inclusive with all meals provided. Non-residential options include suppers, lunches and all refreshments and exclude B&B.
