Set Design and Prop Styling by Rufini

Set designing/dressing since 2000. I began by working at festivals and film premier parties, after coming back from travelling around Europe for 5 years.  My multi-disciplinary Set Design Interpretation degree course at WSA, enabled my acquisition of skills in prop making & set design, using many different materials, tools and equipment. As a D&T, Textiles and Product Design teacher, I honed these skills further.

I enjoy working in different environments and problem solving within confined time-scales and budgets.
