These are some more images from working on the Macbeth production. These images were taken in the first few days of working on the production. These are some examples of the work i created while shadowing Caryl working with props. I wore down alot of leather with sand paper. I also learned how to sew with waxed leather and  how to wrap sword handles with leather. I cut the leather into a long strip  and tightly wrapped the leather around the handle. It was very important to wrap the handle as tight as possible to make sure that the actors could grip the handle well enough. I first struggled with the handle as it has a round middle. I found that after a few attempts the technique became alot easier.
