Advanced Prop Making - 3 Day Workshop

About Advanced Prop Making - 3 Day Workshop

This three day workshop will be a crash course in making replica prop weapons or costume pieces from foam and other sheet materials.

Suitable for budding crafters, cosplayer and have-a-go makers with all materials and equipment supplied, this hands-on workshop will be made up of a small number of students who will each have an opportunity to be make their very own realistic, durable and lightweight prop weapon or costume piece.

Working primarily with products from Poly-Props Ltd, which in my opinion are the best foams and products on the market, students will be shown the tools, techniques and tricks for making impressive props with practical demonstrations which they will in turn use to produce their own piece from start to finish.

Students will work their way through the various stages including:
-Reference sourcing
-Blueprint creation
-Build planning
-Material selection
-Hand and power tool techniques
-Sealing and painting

All theories, techniques and principles that will be discussed and demonstrated throughout the weekend will be transferable to a range of other material, allowing the creation of more robust props or even masters for molding and casting.

Feel free to join the Sorenzo Workshops Facebook Group to discuss prop selection and any aspect of any upcoming workshops.
