This practical weekend workshop will give you an introduction to the stages of set design, from reading the script and creating a concept, to understanding what is required to design a set and create a model box.

Using a short text, we will teach you how to gather imagery and ideas from the play and bring those ideas to life. You will learn practical skills of model making and scale drawing and we’ll show you how to make the most of these in your own work.
