Jess Bailey of Fables will present a workshop on songwriting including tips for beginners, Q&A for all levels and song critiques. Coming from a background of visual arts, Jess will impart techniques to write songs that paint a picture - bring lyrics of a song to workshop or start fresh

InterPlay is an improvisation practice that combines voice and movement, song and story in easy, incremental ways. Besides being great fun, InterPlay develops expressive versatility, creative confidence and connection with others. It takes the focus off performance, yet often leads to moments of delightful, unforced artistry. Great for singers and songwriters! You’ll access the power of your voice and source song ideas.
Belinda trained in InterPlay in Australia and is also an experienced Alexander Technique teacher. She lives in Greta Valley and teaches InterPlay in Christchurch. Go to, or Facebook InterPlay New Zealand. Also see or
