Nationally Acclaimed “Hands On” Stage Lighting Workshops Special offer this term and spring term

This nationally acclaimed “hands on” stage lighting workshop led by Professional Lighting Designer John Watson. This is a workshop that will definitely inspire and help your students get to grips with stage lighting and improve their grades as well.      

With the use of a massive 2.5metre  tall model stage built up by the students, they will have “hands on “  and explore real Flood lights, Fresnels, Profile spots, gobos, and  new LED lighting,  create fire and water effects. With flown scenery and  “west end sets” this is a workshop your students will never forget!

Don’t take my word for it, here are some reviews by drama teachers of the workshops.

“John’s workshop was the reverse of peeling away at onion layers, he literally built the “layers” of a theatre in front of our eyes and then using totally interactive techniques showed us the “hows and whys” of lighting.  This was learning that was digestible, kinesthetic, revelatory and fun!” Thank you again for a fantastic day today.(16th Nov 12)..I felt it was pitched really well for our students.  I will certainly recommend you on to colleagues. Ms Nancy  McClean   Head of Drama  The Royal Grammar School, Guildford 16th Nov 12
