Sally Grant gained her BA Hons in Design at The University of Creative Arts, Canterbury. She's worked in a wide range of 2D and 3D creative fields from sculpture, book illustration, printmaking and packaging to setting up her own business - organising and decorating festivals or making pop-up parties look beautiful. Everything interests her.
Sally has a passion for all creative processes and a deep drive to make visual statements: designing, making, building, painting, working with fabric... or a mixture of all at once - she's always looking for new ways to invent. She thrives in a pressured artistic environment.
Working in a team and learning new skills (or sharing her own) is also really important for Sally so a further degree in Education (PGCE, University of Leeds) allowed her to become a specialist Art Teacher. Working in Montessori, infant and mainstream schools she has directed theatre and creative arts projects and delivered programmes for Gifted and Talented pupils in the UK.
Sally's arrival in Zurich proved a golden opportunity to draw all these things together, when she became involved with Close Encounters Theatre. Designing and making sets and costumes for various stage plays led to new study (Set Design for Performance, St Martins/ Central, University Arts London, 2022) and a wonderful channel for all the creative disciplines Sally is fascinated by. Never happier than when leading a team to help her realise her creative vision, and supporting the growth of young and developing actors, Sally is living her best life working in theatre.
