Program Overview

Program Description:

This course will develop skills in costume interpretation, pattern drafting, women’s and men’s costume making, hat making and accessories. Undertake costume supervision and placements with professional companies and designers and work closely with students of all other theatre disciplines to contribute to the overall understanding of performance and theatre production. Technically skilled and creatively inventive ‘makers’ are an essential part of any theatre production team, sensitive to the stylistic intentions of the designer and director. The work of the costume constructor is to interpret the given costume designs, whether period or modern, abstract or representational. As part of the production team, you will work closely with the costume designer to interpret the brief and create costumes and accessories to the level of finish expected by contemporary audiences, and are able to research and understand the time, place and narrative of the production through analysis of scripts and creative concepts.  Alongside high-level and diverse costume making skills, you will develop skills in time management, resource management, budgeting and scheduling, working closely with students of all other theatre disciplines to contribute to the overall understanding of performance and theatre production. Costume construction has evolved into a craft which requires the making of garments suited to the modern body, while achieving the correct shape and silhouette for a given era and design. It is important that the garments are appropriate for the character and are comfortable to enable the performer to use costume to enhance their performance. The course does not focus solely on historical garments and is proud of the diversity of projects included.
