Past Projects With an excellent portfolio of past projects Clare has worked in many media.  Fabricating works in metal, wood, glass, silver, gold and even cake!  She has worked on many productions either individually or as part of a team, and I’m sure you’ll recognise some of the final output for film, TV or theatre.

“As a freelance special effects and prop maker I have over 16 years experience working on projects for the film, television and theatre industries.  I have worked on productions for Glyndebourne, and at The Royal Opera House as an assistant armourer. I have also worked for Neil Corbould - Special Effects at Pinewood Studios. I have a very broad skill base, ranging from large scale work such as metalwork, set building, rocket building, mould making, painting, spraying, fibre-glass fabrication and welding - through to small scale work such as silver soldering and jewellery making, as well as upholstering and sewing. I have experience in teaching students at Secondary, F.E. and H.E level, I am comfortable in working with large groups of students and with teams of volunteers, temps and freelancers through project co ordination. I am a hard working professional. I enjoy problem solving and challenges. Perhaps most importantly I can work under pressure whilst still maintaining a sense of humour!” Clare Grotefeld
