The Language of Fans

As part of the Spanish Golden Age Season at Arcola Theatre, Arcola Creative Engagement presents this unique workshop, providing a hands on insight into this fascinating aspect of Spanish Culture.


The fan holds a unique place in Spanish culture, not just for its decorative use, but also for its fascinating method of communication. We will be hosting fan making workshops led by Almudena Adalia Calvo, giving participants the opportunity to make beautiful handmade fans and to learn how to communicate through traditional gestures and making fans from recycled materials and exploring the culture of the fans and their secret language, the ‘Code of Seduction’. Join us after for a glass of wine before enjoying one of our Spanish Golden Age productions.

To book, please call our box office or go online and purchase a Spanish Golden Age ticket for either Punishment Without Revenge on 14 February (Valentine’s Day) or A Lady of Little Sense on 10 March  and select the £25 Ticket and Fan Workshop option.
