Workshops & Classes

From our popular Claymation modeling workshops in partnership with Clayrazy, our MineCRAFT workshops with Bricks for Kidz, and workshops with Giga Training in filmmaking and animation, Strand Arts Centre provides an abundance of opportunity for young children to unleash their creativity! In addition to learning new skills, these workshops help to boost confidence, interact with others and learn about teamworking.



Ni Stars offers weekly classes in singing, dancing, drama, DJing, TV presenting and loads more. With tuition from experienced industry professionals, students also get regular performance opportunities including the summer musicals (most recently The Wizard of Oz and Little Shop of Horrors), Christmas pantomimes and end of year talent shows.



And with the huge increase in film and television production in Northern Ireland, there’s never been a better time to develop lifelong skills with a view to a career within the creative industries. Strand Arts Centre and Giga Training deliver training for young people in filmmaking, editing and music production.
