2019 - present
Why did you apply for an apprenticeship?
I applied for an apprenticeship because I loved the hands-on approach creative apprenticeships offer, and I believe it is a great opportunity to be able to learn on the job, while earning a salary.
What new skills have you learned during your time at the NT so far?
I have learned a lot of new skills during my time at the NT; skills & techniques such as creating concrete, marble and tiled floors, wood graining, tree making, and have further developed both my painting and drawing skills.
What has been the most exciting show/project you’ve worked on?
The most exciting show I have worked on at the NT is definitely The Visit as I was heavily involved in this set, and even created two tree stumps which the two main actors sat on for one of the most pivotal scenes in the play.
What has it been like to help the NT to adapt during this unique time in its history?
The most recent project I have worked on at the NT was a personal project, where I created an aged Victorian styled tiled floor. I was able to choose my own design for this piece, which really added to the enjoyment of this project.
It has been a pleasure to help the NT be as safe as possible in such unique times. It is one of my greatest achievements at the NT so far to be able to help in the creation of a seating bank to transform the Olivier Theatre into the round for a socially distanced audience.
