Deryk trained at Rose Bruford College in technical theatre arts and in his second year specialised in prop-making. After graduating he joined the National Theatre props department to further his understanding and practical knowledge of the craft

A good prop maker needs to be proficient in a huge variety of materials and techniques, which are constantly evolving and changing in response to the challenges of the industry.
