A ‘header’ the rest…

Well the workshops have been a busy place this morning, no surprises when it’s the last official day before the fit-up for the opera triple bill starts.  The main focus this morning in scenic construction is the header for the shop front. 

As you can see, the construction team are working on mouldings for the header section and Meg is carefully drawing out her lettering for it.  Construction have given Meg a section of the header to work on so she can begin the long and detailed process of drawing out all of the letters and painting them in, whilst the construction team are able to continue working on the main header section.

The rest of the scenic art team are also working on signs for the opera (there are quite a few!) Tara is doing a great job of carefully painting in the letters on her sign whilst Emily and Max are working hard ageing and adding rust to theirs. 

Meanwhile in the props department, Hannah’s frame is moving on fast.  She has cast the first set of her ornate mouldings which look stunning on the frame and is busy making the next set by layering up latex into her plaster moulds.  Can’t wait to see how it turns out when it’s finished Hannah!
