How it works
The costume designer will work closely with the director to determine the number, types and styles of costumes that are required for a production. Costumes are designed and then either sourced from our own extensive stock, made from scratch or hired from commercial hire companies. A variety of skills including, sewing, dyeing, alteration of existing costumes including distressing a costume to look old or worn are used. Once a production is running other maintenance such as running repairs, washing, drying and ironing are used.
The wardrobe team are a friendly and and enthusiastic bunch who enjoy having a good chat while sewing and making costumes. Learning is done on the job and you will find a warm welcome whatever your current level of experience is.
