Set Making

Digital Workshop

Suitable for students in Primary school, ages 10 – 12 years old who have an interest in theatre, design and art.

Learn concepts of designing a theatre set through a making activity as a designer guides you through the design process and building a model box (known as a sketch model).

In this workshop you will design your own set box using upcycled materials found in your house.
