Interests
I am very excited to announce that i will be teaching classes in mold making covering a wide variety of materials and methods at the North Head Sanctuary Arts Space School.

Classes will be an initial three week coarse for $105 Monday nights from 6 pm including materials and handouts. 
Then If you want to develop skills further as a casual spot at $35 per session.

For those of you outside Sydney the good news is that it will give me the opportunity to put together a series of tutorials that i will be sharing over the coming months.

There are a couple of places remaining for the coarse starting 21st of July.

Where did you learn to make suits like that? We did a little at uni my large bunyip was an enjoyable experience but if i had to do it again i would do it very differently.

I wish I could give you the easy answer and put it down to magic, but all I can say is practice, asking heaps of questions and spending my days in front of Youtube. The ones presented on the profile were actually made by two other artists though; I get the joy of spreading the happiness and bringing them to life.

I recently started up my own studio though, as I'd like to try my hand at fabrication/costume building and find it really fascinating and creative.

The Bunyip sounds pretty interesting, and the spider is just ace! Can I ask where you learnt to do the prosthetics for the Troll?

Thank you for the watch Mate, much appreciated.

I studied prop making for theatre and film which i did for many years but on the way i was side tracked by molten metal and really found a job that was the perfect fit working full time in the arts and honing my skills as a sculptor, but i really love the furs and puppetry so much.

Prosthetics was done for part of the coarse it is not as hard as people would have you think you can make some incredible effects for very little money, but i have never had the urge or the need to do it again for any job i have been on. Although it was where i was introduced to alginate the molding stuff they use for teeth and i love it to take teeth and hand molds and alike. If you are in Sydney we sell all sorts of materials at the gallery at north head.

I have a big box of fake fur i collected years ago and one day I look forward to using it to make some beautiful puppets but oh so very busy.
