Workshop.: From Design to Stage - Online Talk with Costume Maker Rachel Hodgson

Online Event
Dates and times

20 Aug 2020 6:30pm

Online Event

In this talk, Rachel will give you a full overview on what it's like to work in the world of costume making. From design to stage, she'll talk you through the full process!

Having worked in the West End on theatre and musicals, Rachel has a wealth of experience which she will share with you. From the design process at the beginning to fabric sourcing, fitting, measuring and cutting, rehearsals and tech week, Rachel will talk about the entire process of a garment. You'll learn about what she looks for in fabric (the effect under lighting and the environmental impact), developing costumes which are historically accurate but still work for stage, drafting, cutting and fitting to actors and breaking down costumes!

This is an online talk.
