Celebrating Shakespeare

Students mark 400 years since the Bard's death

Design students have created a life-size installation featuring more than a dozen of Shakespeare’s most famous creations handcrafted from paper and cardboard.

Each piece was individually crafted by 22 first year students our Design for Theatre, Performance and Events degree course and includes scale models over six feet tall, a three-metre-high balcony and even a walk-in tavern.
