AchesonWalsh Studios specialise in the design and fabrication of kinetic sculpture and puppets.  In my time here, we were making a large scale Loch Ness monster puppet for a performance that was in development.  I learned how to draft and enlarge patterns off a sculpture, and translate these into foam pieces which were pieced together meticulously.  I also had the opportunity to develop my foam sculpting skills.  I experimented  made the leaves and algae with various hessians, wire and twine.  Working in a smaller team on a larger scale piece was very educational and inspiring.
