Booking us

    If you think JAMS Sessions are a good fit for you, we are ready to provide a series of sessions.

    We like to provide a series of sessions to allow maximum benefit to participants and staff.

    Booking JAMS for a minimum of 4 sessions allows residents to get to know the Artist Facilitator, learn what a session involves and feel more confident in the environment. Providing 4 sessions also introduces staff to new ideas which they can develop for their own use.

    We are of course delighted to work with you to develop a Session Series to suit your requirements, and will provide on-offs for special events.

    Please contact us at hello@joyfuljams.co.uk to discuss your group’s needs and negotiate a suitable price.
