More pieces of the puzzle…

 Looking around the design realisation workshops yesterday it’s clear to see that our first years have mastered the art of multi-tasking…a skill that is needed nearly every day when working in design realisation and one which will be very useful when working in the industry! No sooner have I taken a picture of a prop or a piece of scenery being worked on, by the time I’ve posted them on here the prop has moved on about three stages in its process and a new task has been started. 


In the morning, Anna finished her marbled floor by adding her veins and a cream glaze whilst Giulia continued working on her artwork (you’ll see where this goes later in the week!). 

 Meanwhile in the props workshop, things are starting to take shape and get very colourful indeed.  Pieces of glitter fabric embellish what used to be dull MDF and bright colours adorn almost every surface.  Here, Kim, Jasmine and Jess are all working hard, I can’t wait to see the finished articles!


Back in the scenic art workshop, the girls are working on their second cloth for the DRP…there’s no keeping it a secret anymore…


Vanessa showed the girls how to project the Las Vegas image onto the cloth to scale it up to the right size and Giulia, Jasmine, Anna and Clare get to work drawing up the sign in chalk and begin blocking in the image in white paint.  You thought the night sky cloth was colourful? You’ve seen nothing yet…
