Meet the Maker:

Leah Kurzepa

My name is Leah Kurzepa and I am a prop maker based in Scotland.

 

I found my passion for props whilst working in amateur theatre and doing Live-Action-Role-Play. Since graduating in 2017, I've worked in film and TV as well as some adverts and pantomimes.

I'm a generalist, focusing on gathering as many skills and experiences as I can. My previous work ranges from clay sculpting, mould making and polystyrene carving to crochet, making toys and 12ft tall puppets!
