BOOK

THIS COURSE HAS MOVED FOR 2019!
From Falmouth, Cornwall to BOLTON, nr Manchester

If you're aged 14 - 18 and passionate about prosthetics or just want to try something creative, fun and unusual this course is for you.

The University of Bolton's SVFX department is a leading course provider with great industry links and tutors with a wealth of technical knowledge. This is an opportunity to take your first steps in the subject and make a connection with one of the UK's most popular university departments specialising in our craft.

The course begins with learning how to create, apply and colour basic casualty effects. You will try direct-applied techniques, then design and make your own gelatine appliance from sculpture through moulding and casting to create a piece like a wound, zombie boils or alien skin texture. This is followed by designing and making a full-scale creature mask using a plaster mould - a fundamental technique upon which to build your future technical skills.

You will have an 'industry insight' session to explain the role of prosthetics and makeup FX and the course culminates in a photo shoot on the last day, to capture your mask and start off your portfolio. This jam-packed week will take you into a new, exciting world but watch out.....it’s highly addictive!
