Page to Stage – Design Realisation 

Presented by Union House Theatre

Co-hosted by UHT’s Allen Laverty & Clynton Jones

Do you have a keen interest in developing skills to design for performance? Ever wondered how to take an idea and make it come to life?

UHT is offering a five-session intensive workshop about the skills and techniques you might need to bring the creative design concepts from the page of scripts to the realisation on the theatre stage. The workshops will cover all design disciplines: scenic, lighting, sound, audiovisual (projection) and costume, while discussing and exploring topics such as text analysis, the language of design, creative conversations, mood boarding, colour theory, designing for devised works, budgeting, materials and some theatre trickery.

No previous experience required. Participants must be available to commit to all five sessions.
