After the drawing exercises we moved onto collage that was based around the text we’d been given. We were told to chose a passage in the text and after various text analysis processes and library research to find appropriate images, we used collage and drawing to create an impression of the environment of our chosen passage.
After this, we were introduced to the idea of Sketch Boxes. These are scale representations of the interior of a theatre where the designer experiments with staging and design. Ours were based on an imaginary theatre and made from foam board.
We spent the remainder of the course populating our sketch boxes with our designs, using scale drawings (1:25) and a variety of material to recreate scaled versions of furniture and textures. I was really happy with the use of sticky back plastic to recreate a glossed floor – my Blue Peter dreams finally come true!
