12 • THE ARTISAN FALL 2023 CRAFT EDUCATION Craft Education & Local 706 Co-Host Event On April 23, both Craft Education and Local 706 Education hosted a joint event at The Elks Lodge in Burbank. This was a full day of education for both make-up and hair stylists, including a lighting class, a live 3D-scanning demo, and various other presentations. The morning program of Local 706 Education was hosted by President Julie Socash, and taught by make-up artist Vivian Baker, along with TML's (The Makeup Light) Michael Astalos. This three-hour class discussed lighting technology, including color theory, color temperatures and even the ever-changing lightbulb technology. Vivian and Michael led a slideshow presentation that showed how lighting affects the work of the make-up artist and hair stylist, both behind and in front of the camera. This presentation was followed up by Big Mac Trailers with Local 706 make-up artists James and Dyane MacKinnon discussing the importance of efficient lighting in the trailers and how to set up your workspaces with appropriate solutions.

James and Dyane brought a Big Mac trailer, set up with portable TML lighting. Vivian and Michael walked through the trailer with our attendees giving our artists a hands-on opportunity to see how these lighting options can be put to use. James and Dyane were also on site to demonstrate their hair and make-up trailer, designed for the current and working make-up artists and hair stylists, including wig dryers, wig storage, and private "Crow's Nest" stations. After a generous lunch donated by First Entertainment Credit Union, our Craft Education portion of the day began with a live 3D life-cast scanning presentation from Autonomous F/X and their new custom wig company Wig Worx. Our members watched in real time as a face and head were scanned and printed in about 30 minutes, offering our members an alternative and updated education to the traditional life-casting techniques of the past, while demonstrating the technology of the present day. Kryolan shared samples of some of their products that are versatile for both make-up and hair work,
