Student Modelmaking Work Experience Opportunity this Summer


***************** 07/07/14 THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN CANCELLED *********************

Unfortunately this project has been cancelled. Should there be any change to this we will inform all of those who have enquired via email. Apologies for any inconvenience caused and we hope to see you all again soon! Scott and Jim 07/07/14

We have recently been approached to get involved with an interesting modelmaking project for Manchester City Football Club. The Club has recently completed a huge training facility close to their home stadium at Eastlands. The site covers such an area that there are 4 separate receptions for guests to enter.

Our task is to produce a 2m square master plan model of the area featuring all key buildings and notable landmarks in the surrounding area. The exact scale style and extent of the model is yet to be confirmed but one thing is for sure – we will need to make four of them with one going at each entrance way!

Manchester City have given us a lot of freedom with this project and we feel it will be a good opportunity for current students to get involved and take part in a live project which will be on public display at the site for many years to come. The project will allow us to teach some more on the theory of making and hopefully further your understanding of the role of making in your degree and sign in general.

At this stage an exact date for the project has not been confirmed but is most likely to be taking place throughout July and August. There will be a limited number of people we can have working on the project.

If you would like to get involved for a day or more please get in touch by emailing myself at or drop into the workshop to discuss the project.
