From ancient craftsmanship to cutting-edge digital technology: HCA’s excellent facilities set us apart from other institutions.

Technical Demonstrators

Whether you are rehearsing for a performance, recording sound, editing a film, animating, making jewellery or screen printing; our technical demonstrators are on hand to help and guide you.  They are all experts in their fields, and play a crucial role in your practical learning at HCA. Many of our technical demonstrators are still active designer-makers or performers in their own right.  They are passionate about their disciplines, and equally passionate about passing on their knowledge and expertise.

With their help, you will be introduced to new processes and skills giving you the confidence to use a   range of specialist tools, techniques, processes and practices. They will support you as you make your ideas come to life.  Find our more about our dedicated team by exploring our staff page.

“I love those magic moments when you see a student realising I’ve got this.” 

Ian Berrill, Senior Technical Demonstrator

At HCA we encourage the exploration of traditional processes alongside innovative techniques, and this is echoed by the variety and accessibility of our workshops and studios.

“The technical staff are amazing, nothing is ever too much trouble, they are always patient, knowledgeable and friendly”
