Our delightful Designer for Black Shuck, Michelle Bristow, gives us a glimpse into the world of set building – you can come and see the set in situ, 11-19 May 2016 – book your tickets now!
We started out by mitre-ing (real word?) some of the timber so that we could make the structure for the bracing. It was hard!
The next part of the support structure, drilling the main upright piece to the bottom support piece.
Bracing pieces completed!
Laying out the pieces ready to have the holes drilled in to mark where the screws go, in order to be flat packed into my car and assembled at the venue.
Marking out the holes and numbering them, so its easy to match up the pieces at the get in.
Jacobean woodstain was the perfect colour, heres the groyne after two coats –
The fun (and messy) part – painting! All ready for assembly next week.
