“The Yellow Jigsaw workshops are fantastic. The sessions are practical, filled with industry knowledge and tricks of the trade. Being leaders of a social enterprise themselves, you can tell how Kirsty and Grace are passionate about helping others shine.”

A wealth of experience.

Most sessions are run by Yellow Jigsaw Director and former Manchester Evening News journalist Kirsty Day – along with other talented colleagues in the industry.

Kirsty has more than 18 years experience of working in the media and is passionate about diversifying the media.


“What can I say, apart from a huge thank you, so much, for leading such a wonderful session. You both were so brilliant at inspiring our neighbours, getting them feeling excited about sharing their story, and introducing some really valuable techniques for everyone so they feel confident and excited for their media debuts!
“Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
