This summer, the Royal Opera House’s Thurrock production park is giving everyone the chance to try something new and creative. You could be part of the team who will create a new artwork with a group of professionals. An art installation will be produced during a week of workshops, unveiled Orsett country show and then put on display at High House Production Park.
A number of non-residential courses are open to both adults and children and will run from 13-17 August. They will offer members of the public the opportunity to work with professional designers and artists to learn more about digital art, soundscapes and costume, set and prop design. The new artwork will come out of these sessions:
