Creative workshops - including natural dyes, drawing, painting, gardening, textile explorations and self-publishing - have taken place on invitation or been initiated since 2017 in various cultural institutions and independent spaces internationally and nationally, including Camden Art Centre, The Hepworth Wakefield, Southwark Park Galleries and Henry Moore Studios & Gardens. The photographs which follow fonction as an open archives of selected past workshops in England (Camden Art Centre, HOME by RM, Exposed Art Projects and Blank Space Gallery), France (Galerie Jean-Francois Kaiser and Etxe Nami) and Japan (Nidi Gallery).

Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck's approach to ideating and facilitating workshops frequently includes a multisensorial aspect infused with enthusiasm, often beginning the session with a hot cup of organic herbal tea and a walk/breathing exercise. Through her workshops, conceptualised as calming and playful, the artist transmits skills and aims to nurture the participants while also developing their sensibilities.
On the invitation of Camden Art Centre and in collaboration with a local primary school, Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck has ideated and developed a 2022/23 year-long learning programme based around the themes of Joy and Togetherness. Throughout the year, every pupil at the school from year one through to six will participate in the project based around interacting with and understanding the natural world.

Please use the contact page to discuss a workshop in relation to your space and / or cultural agenda. These shared ateliers, a time with a practicing artist, can be directed towards audiences of all age groups, including children, and can facilitated in languages including English, French and German.
