    Additional Skills

    If there's anything craft related I tend to be good at that. I have experience in:

    - Set building

    - Sewing

    - Puppet making

    If there's any specialised equipment I haven't used before I can be very quick at picking things up. I have a steady hand and good hand-eye coordination.
