Chloe Benbow is a Designer / Maker for Performance & Events based in the South West. Chloe is a graduate from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and has a BA (Hons) in Design for Performance. She specialises in the design and fabrication of set, costumes, props and puppets.

"A piece of theatre, event or any performance is the ultimate product of a collaborative process. I believe that my role within that as a designer and maker is to help create unique and thought provoking live experiences for an audience, which subsequently enriches our community and culture.
I am a maker at heart and this practical approach informs every part of my design process, whether working as an individual or as part of a team. I enjoy the challenges of creative problem solving and can apply my skills to a range of disciplines from scenic art and construction, intricate scale models and even giant mechanised insect puppets!
My time at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama studying Design for Performance has provided me with many valuable skills and experiences. I am excited to consolidate all that I have learnt and apply this to a multitude of performances and events."
