Rosco schedules free stage lighting workshops

Rosco has scheduled two free Professional Development Workshops at venues in Liverpool and Manchester.
The workshops, designed for lighting and scenic professionals, teachers and technicians, regularly attract large audiences throughout Europe. The workshop leaders, all Rosco staff, show participants how to create stage pictures and effects with lighting or scenery, generally using equipment and products likely to be in their theatres or paint shops.
For example, the morning session, devoted to lighting, explains how you can simulate raging or smoldering fire, still or rushing water, rain, snow, etc., simply using gobos and modern spotlights. Some advanced techniques for simulating stained glass effects, reflected lightning bolts and other frequently requested effects are also demonstrated.
The afternoon session on finishing and treating sets and scenic pieces shows how scene shops can faithfully reproduce brick walls, travertine marble, or other surfaces in their scenery, props or scenic pieces. This session also covers the practical matters of flame proofing and working with various materials used in stagecraft.
Further details of the workshops, along with a list of dates and locations and registration details, is available at: www.rosco-ca.com/products/pdp/uk-workshops.html.
