A Dramatic Entry – Putting Vacuum Forming Centre Stage

The Lir Academy stages 10 large scale productions each year, each requiring tailored and specific visual props, which are all designed and produced on site by students.

As a proud sponsor of the The Lir Academy, Inspire have donated a Formech 508FS vacuum forming machine, with additional auxiliary products, including the line bender FLB1000, for students to utilise these design and production tools for such purposes.

In addition, the Inspire team visited the campus in Dublin, to install the machine and deliver a day of hands on and interactive training with staff and students across specialities.

Since 2011, The Lir Academy has provided education in all aspects of theatre education. This includes stage management, technical design, woodwork, costume, set, lighting design, and prop production. Affiliated with Trinity College, Dublin and RADA, London, it has quickly become one of Europe’s leading dramatic arts academies.

The entire Inspire Formech team is proud to be backstage, helping tomorrow’s theatrical designers achieve their dreams. How can we help you? Find out more.
