Event Details

A 1 day course exploring visual facilitation with individuals and groups

Little_tickDo you want to learn how to create visuals at meetings and workshops?

Little_tickWould your publicity materials, reports and case studies come alive with your unique illustrations?

Little_tickAre you curious about capturing concepts in a visual, creative way?

Little_tickDo you have a strong desire to ‘get back to basics’ and learn how to communicate using hand-drawn visuals?

We are excited to share our tried and tested ways to use visuals in your work to bring stories and concepts to life, stimulate the imagination and to interact with and engage people


You can benefit by attending this fun interactive course. We explore how to create a visual record and produce visual templates for facilitating in a lively accessible way, including: 

  • The ‘building blocks’ of graphics – lettering, people, icons, text containers and more

  • The difference between graphic recording and graphic facilitation (and when to use each)

  • How to structure a visual record as you facilitate 

  • How to create your own graphic templates to use when facilitating 

This course is suitable for anyone who facilitates, trains, coaches or produces documentation.

By the end of the day you will:
  • Feel confident about creating your own graphics
  • Understand how to use graphics in a variety of contexts
  • Have lots of ideas for your next presentation or training session
  • Be hooked on the joys of working visually!

“Kate makes valuable drawing skills accessible to anyone”

Les Hood, Training Officer, Adult Support and ProtectionNHS Highlands

‘We had a wonderful day connecting with everyone last week. We dived into taking imperfect action, making use of the graphics for our Team Meeting agenda, which worked beautifully. We all relaxed by colouring in, whilst managing to successfully work through a range of team topics. Thanks for the inspiration! Thanks for all the laughter too everyone. We’ve bought some ‘magic paper’ ready for doing some graphic facilitation on next week’s course …’ 

 Karrie Marshall, Director, Creativity In Care, Inverness

I thoroughly enjoyed the drawing out ideas with graphics workshop. What stood out was the fun and laughter that emerged from the exercises woven throughout the day. Kate has a way of teaching that allows participants to feel relaxed and at ease. The workshop is very empowering. I felt the whole room grow in confidence over the day. At the end of the day there was a room full of people with new skills and ability to draw and to take this back and use in their work places. A week after the course and I’ve already used my new skills. I highly recommend doing this course if you are somewhat considering it. The greatest learning and outcomes I’ve had from a one day course!

Jeni-Lin Knott, Social Worker, Self-Directed Support Team, NHS Highland

The day was elegantly designed and facilitated, ensuring we participants literally broke-through self-limiting beliefs (can’t draw, won’t draw!) from very early on. The day continued apace, building knowledge and skills in an incremental way. Challenging and fun all in one go, as well as a real confidence-booster! The venue was spot-on and a smashing group of participants collaborated well together too. It suited my needs perfectly, and I am very pleased with my ‘investment’. I would encourage others who would like to use graphics and cartoons to bring to life the written word (but feel they can’t) to attend, as they CAN!
