Miniature Making; The model box project

Our first years have been expanding their skills on a different scale this term with the annual model box project.

During this module visiting lecturer Susannah Henry guides our students through the process of designing a set for a play.  Once they have arrived at their concept they go on to create a 1:25 scale model designed to fit in either the Silk Street or Milton Court theatres.

A change from the usual role of realising the designs of others, it’s a chance for the students to experiment, design, learn model making techniques and express themselves creatively and we really enjoy the results.

Here are some photographs of the finished models:
