Second Year Illustration Lizzie Heath reflects on her time as a student ambassador at this year’s Open House Event.
What was your role at the event?
LH: Most of the day I was at Front of House, greeting the public, signing people up for workshops and giving directions. As well, I assisted Arunima with face painting – there were a lot of butterfly princesses and Spiderman that day I can tell you that!
What was your favourite workshop?
LH: I always find stop-frame animation a brilliant workshop. The nature of making an animation (story boarding, model-making and shooting) is a long process. But I admire the straightforward approach the children and adults take to make their models and shoot their short animations in half an hour.
Have you been to other Open Houses?
LH: Out of the 10 years it has been running, I have only been twice. Last year was similar but there wasn’t any balloons or a bubble machine! Although, this year was the 10th year anniversary so it’s understanding all the stops were pulled out.
How would you describe the event to your friends?
LH: An in house event which opens its doors to the public, welcoming them to experience the creative things that we do.
Summarise Open House in one word?
LH: Fun !
