An intensive, hands-on week long course in the equipment and techniques involved in translating the stage designer's requirements from sketch, illustration or model to the real thing (or what appears to be the real thing) using such skills as modelling, carving, casting and woodturning. Demonstrations of the skills involved in the making of stage properties by RADA's teaching staff will be followed by the opportunity to practise them for yourselves.
This will involve the use of RADA's fully equipped props workshop.
The course is aimed at those who want to explore this highly practical and multi-faceted area of theatre work, picking up a variety of skills which can be further developed and expanded.
Students below the age of 17 are not normally accepted. Entrance is by written application. There is no upper age limit.
