Foundation Courses: Scenehouse is an international design school located in Edinburgh.  Scenehouse INTRO is aimed at participants from a wide range of related disciplines who want to find out if designing for  performance is the career path for them.   This intense, but enjoyable, 4 – 5 day course is delivered by practising designers and will include a visiting director. Students will create a scale model box for a pre arranged text, and will also be given presentations and hand outs. The course gives students a packed and dynamic learning experience that fuses core theatre design skills with creative insights from working practitioners.  The INTRO course is also ideal for students who would like to work on their creative approach to 3d design – or explore model making in a theatrical context.
