By Artist and Designer Rachel Thompson
This workshop is an extension of Responding to Text – Experimental Drawing, but this time uses text extracts as a starting point to make ‘scratch models’ or initial three dimensional model sketches for set designs.
The idea is to introduce participants to the basic principles of set design and the processes involved in creating a visual ‘world’ on stage. Of course, the activity doesn’t necessarily have to run in conjunction with a set design project and can stand alone as a good exercise in using imagination and expression through making.
Rachel Thompson introduced the session by showing students her old sketchbook, from when she was a set design student, showing the design process from creating mood drawings to a scratch model and the final stages designing a detailed, to scale model.
