2017 Costume Skill Share Wrap-Up

The WMTC Costume Department is thrilled to report the success of our recent Costume Skill Share Sessions with three fantastic workshops; Shape and Texture: Knitting and Crochet for CostumeCreative Costume with Mouldable PlasticEmbellishment for costume: Crystal and Feather work. We received over 30 registrations with many people attending multiple sessions and a waitlist for each one.

After running pilot sessions internally in the first half of 2017 WMTC invited the public to join our WMTC Costume Assistants Group, who work tirelessly on all WMTC productions, for these fun and creative afternoons. It was a great opportunity to showcase the diversity and talent of our hardworking team and to share our love of costume with new friends.

Each session focused on very different area of making and we are grateful to our amazing teachers, Laura Houlden, Chi Cheung and Katrina Stanley for their generosity in sharing their knowledge and passion for what they do.

Thanks to all who attended! Stay tuned for further information on new costume skill share workshops in 2018.
