This course is designed for adult learners who are interested in the field of set design and construction. Through a combination of lectures, practical exercises, and group discussions, participants will learn the essential skills and knowledge needed to design and build a set for a theatrical production, film, or event.
The course will cover the basic principles of set design, including the use of colour, texture, and space to create a specific mood or atmosphere. Participants will also learn how to develop a concept for a set and create a design plan that meets the needs of the production.
Practical sessions will focus on the construction of a set using various materials and tools, such as wood, fabric, and paint. Participants will learn about the different types of joints, how to use power tools, and how to work safely in a workshop environment.
Collaboration and communication will be emphasised throughout the course, as participants will work in teams to design and construct a set. Participants will also learn about safety measures and best practices in set construction, including how to handle and store tools and materials safely.
By the end of the course, participants will have gained a solid foundation in set design and construction, and will have the practical skills and knowledge needed to work on their own set design projects.
