What have been your highlights so far?
"Making an 11ft tall puppet in my second year to be performed at the Paa Joe and the Lion gala event at Clumber Park. I had designed it and had the chance to realise it with a team of students which was a valuable experience for me."
What do you think about the course staff?
"If you're well organised and speak to tutors and technical staff in good time to ensure they know what you're planning then they can help you to prepare and plan the process and construction of your design in the best possible way."
