At the weekend, I spend a lovely morning in Nottingham with my Mum at Nottingham Trent’s Make/Believe exhibition, which was a theatre design exhibition of actually quite colossal proportions. It was free entry, and often that means a smaller show. But I was quite taken aback just how much there was to look around.
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a full exhibition on theatre design. But my first post is going to look at the just a snippet of the incredible miniature set designs. You can hardly believe that most of these aren’t bigger than a shoebox! And for the most part, I’m going to let the pictures do the talking
These Chinese lanterns were made from little beads!
Thread was used for what I presume was supposed to be innards! But seriously, how can a miniature scene evoke so much.
For more information, take a look at NTU’s website here. The exhibition runs until 31st Jan, so I suggest you take a look! For opening times and more info, have a look at the link – it will be touring, and end at the V & A museum in London if you miss it.
