Did you know the National Theatre has a Props department who are responsible for making and sourcing all of the props we use on stage? In this three-week course you will discover how materials can be transformed to look utterly different on stage and create your own ornate frame inspired by the design of Amadeus. Learn to sculpt, cast, mould and finish with the National Theatre Props department.

This is your chance to tell us about your interest in design and making. The more you tell us – within the word count – the more we will understand about you and why you want to take part.


We would never want the cost of a course or project to prevent anyone from taking part. A limited number of full and part-funded bursary places are available. If you would like to apply for one, please indicate this on the form when you apply.
