If you have an interest in the technical side of presenting concerts, theatre performances and events this two-part course is a great way to learn about stage lighting. Content will include basic lighting theory and design principles as well as an introduction to equipment and technical terms.
Working with a variety of lighting stage equipment, you will get practical experience – including rigging, focussing and operating – in a professional environment and see how the lighting elements come together in putting on an event or show.
The course will be led by experienced professionals and is especially suitable for those who already have a little technical knowledge and experience, perhaps gained through school, college or with amateur groups.
