Fred  Meller


I teach theory and practice across all three years with particular responsibility for scheduling and tutorial support for stage 1 students.

I received an Arts Council Design Bursary in Scenography. My design work has been for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Cardboard Citizens, The Almeida, The Gate Theatre, The Royal National Theatre Studio, and Grid Iron.

I've designed for spaces that include an old hospital, jam factory, a mortuary, a disused brothel, Victorian labyrinthine Town Hall cellars, a supermarket distribution complex, the biggest potting shed in Europe and traditional theatre buildings.

I exhibited at The Prague Quadrennial in 1999 and 2003. I won the Golden Triga and was selected to exhibit at The World Stage Design in Toronto 2005. My work is part of the V&A Museum permanent collection. My other awards include The Jerwood Design award and Year of the Artist award. I'm also a Fellow of The Arts Foundation.

In 2012 I won a White Square Award, given by the Student Union for tutors deserving praise for outstanding teaching, nominated by students.
