Prop Making

Student Information


I am of the belief that prop-making should be weird, wonderful and leave you feeling like you’ve just run a marathon.

I am always looking for the next fun build; whether that be miniatures, bloody gore SFX, or puppet-making!

I believe in accessibility within the arts, and sharing skills with others – because there are very few skills more fun to learn than those within this odd little industry.
