What a sight to behold!
Every time we go to visit Graham at Albermarle, in Prees; we are positively blown away! It is always such a hub of life- with sets being designed for every pantomime and play that you could possibly think of.
As I mentioned in our last blog, we have a new starter… the lovely Emma, who mentioned her love of all things theatre and drama.
We couldn’t very well keep her in the office- having a set designer for a customer, so as a treat I took her to meet Albermarle and the wonderful people who work for the company.
For a second I thought that she would never want to come back to the office, she was absolutely mesmerised.
Here is our lovely Emma showing her love of all things Rockabilly, holding a record (made of wood and painted may I add!) from the set of Hairspray!
It really does make you wonder how someone can take a piece of wood and bend it in such a way as to create towers for Rapunzel’s or even t.v camera’s like the one below:
Having a back ground in theatre (studying drama at University), Emma was in her element and Graham relished having a fellow stage buff to talk to; especially when it came to the creation process:
Tiny models are made of each and every set, which are then blown up to the correct size and re-scaled!
(If you look to the far right you will see Graham’s first ever set that he designed!)
I was, of course naturally inclined towards Cinderella’s carriage:
If I could get away with travelling around in this contraption, believe me I would.
We love that we can visit our customer’s so regularly and see such wonderful things!
And we love that they chose to use us.
