Workshops

The workshop where the classes are held is specifically set up for young people in mind. Workplace safety plays a big role in our classes as the pupils will learn how different machinery and equipment works, how to use it safely and how to protect yourself from injury. For example, during a set building term members will be taught how to build full-scale set pieces, how to fire proof them and finally paint them ready for a production using all the equipment and workshop tools required (power tools reserved for older class only).

Classes run on a Monday and Wednesday evening.
