Exhibition By Future Artists

Did you attend the Gold Arts Award Exhibition this evening at the Studio Theatre, College Street? Did I just hear a no! Dear me, you missed quite a bit! You missed the chance to view future artists work, try on my art challenge jewellery (including a cake on a plate ring!), viewing theatrical make-up and watching a little slideshow. 
It was lovely to see so many people at the exhibition and it was lovely to talk to them about the progress during our work, how everything was created and if we were going further into this field as a career.
 And whilst the exhibition drew to a close Myself & Izzie took a little photography opportunity. We each took in turns to stand near the lit projector and take photos. (scroll for photos)

It was a wonderful evening and so lovely to meet so many people. Thank You to those who attended, it was great talking to you all & we hope you had a lovely summer evening!

The Wardrobe - Review By Lucy Wakefield

Written by Sam Holcroft –Writer-In-Residence at the National Theatre Studio Directed by Nikki Disney. I saw this play at Lakeside Arts Centre, Nottingham (8th March 2014) as part of the National Theatre Connections 2014 programme in which I also participated but in a different play (Angels by Pauline McLynn).
The play focusses on an antique wardrobe that has given a safe hiding place to small groups of children over five hundred years. The wardrobe now stands in a museum and each night when it closes, its stories are secretly told in a series of flashbacks which include tales of the monarchy, the plague, Victorian times, the outbreak of World War I and through to modern times and the birth of social media. The artforms involved in this production were drama, comedy, tragedy, authentic historical music (e.g. during the Tudor scenes) and sound effects such as during battle scenes.
Cast members were used cleverly so that main and ensemble roles were equally shared. For instance, cast membe…

Pottery Class - Painting & Getting Darn Right Messy!

Sorry everyone for not posting recently, you won't believe how wonderfully hectic it's been over the past few weeks.
