Intern at your service! (Part 2)

On the second day we relocated to Hackney Downs and the painting began! And let me tell you, there was a LOT of painting to do. As a group of about 5 we must have painted about 60 garden trellises. The photo below was taken at the end of day 3 and we were exhausted, but told that was the last of our trellis trauma! These would be used as cladding for the main stage and gazebo to create that american summer camp feel to it.
When there's people everywhere in high vis jackets setting up cabins, stages, sound tests and all you can see is planks of woods, piles of wires, boxes of antiques it's hard to imagine it all coming together in time for opening. 
Even in the last few hours, the area looked completely different and it was amazing to see how it went from an empty park to an all american summer camp resort. 
It's seriously impressive.

Intern at your service! (Part 1)

I was lucky enough to join the art department for Future Cinema for a week to help them set up for their Dirty Dancing event! Even though it involved a lot of moving, it meant I could have a sneaky 
insight into how things progressed from concept to completion.
Surrounded by theatre chairs, plant pots, antique tables, records, mirrors, lampshades (including a furry lampshade) in this beautifully large old school, I couldn't wait to see how they would all play a part in just a matter of 5 days...

Thanks for reading x

Cambridge Heath

I saw this on the side of a restaurant and I just thought there was something quite charming about it.
