Theatrical Carpentry


Session 1 - July 17 - 21

  • Train in the safe and effective use of power tools and equipment;

  • Experiment with a variety of construction materials and methods;

  • Build basic set pieces such as flats, stage decking, windows, doors and sculptural elements.

​During Theatrical Carpentry II

  • Explore more three-dimensional carpentry techniques;

  • Create challenging set pieces such as curved flats, wheels, functioning doors and arched windows.
