John Lindsey from Young Americans Christian School in Conyers, GA brings us this cool use of flagging tape.
The total cost for this design was around $100. The material used to make the triangular designs is called flag tape. Each triangle could be made from one roll for $2.00 a roll. They started by cutting 6ft long pieces of thin wood and drilling a screw into each end into the stage floor. Since this stage was also used for drama productions, they used their “fly systems” to hold the top of the triangles. This could easily be done using wire or string with a carabiner on the end. The process of building a triangle started with stapling the flagging tape to the end of the wood on the floor, up to the top anchor, then back down to the other end of the wood and stapled. Continue this process to finish the design. It is an easy and inexpensive design and the white tape reflects colors from washes and Par lights great.
The Chapel Leadership Program is a class available at this school where students have the opportunity to build inexpensive church stages. The also learn lighting, sound, worship tech, and media.
