Props are essential to building the world of film. In this exciting workshop, design and make your own prop based on your favourite movie or game. Use tools and learn crafting techniques to bring your idea to life! This workshop focuses on working with thermoplastic and shaping the material using heat guns. This activity can be continued at home. Props made can be taken home.

“Jump Into” workshops are a rapid introduction to a topic and can be built upon by attending our school holiday workshops. No parental supervision required.
