16-21: Getting Started with Theatre Design

How does a designer start to work on a show? This three-part course led by Death of England co-designer Sadeysa Greenaway-Bailey, will explore the early stages of theatre design, showing how you can use out-of-the-box thinking to stimulate creativity. Through practical exercises, you will get an insight into ways designers can turn their wildest of ideas into reality on stage.

Whether you are exploring theatre design for the first time, or you have some experience, this workshop will give you tools to help you unlock your ideas.

You must be available for every session to take part in this course.

To apply please complete this form by Tuesday 18 February 2020. This is your chance to tell us about your interest in theatre design. The more you tell us – within the word count – the more we will understand about you and why you want to take part.

We are keen to hear from young people from a range of different backgrounds, abilities, genders and ethnicities for this opportunity.

Course dates:

Tuesday 3 March, 5–8pm
