Jamieson has been a prop builder and scenic artist on
hundreds of productions of Shakespeare, Canadian work, musicals and new plays.
Michelle has been a Professional Prop Builder since 2004, creating props first
for the Blyth Festival and for many years now at the Stratford Festival. She
began her career at York University studying theatre production with an
emphasis on design and new play creation. Studying mask performance has led to
creating masks for many years both professionally and for her own curiosity. Her
teaching career began with Off the Wall Theatre Production Arts Courses and has
taken her to El Salvador, all across Ontario and to First Nations communities.
She has also been working with the Stratford Festival Education Department for
past 4 years working in schools and teaching workshops. Her passion
for masks, props and puppets is contagious and she loves to share the joy of
creation with her students.
