Costume Design


For kids 8–12 years

With Srebrenka

Learn how to create costumes for an original performance piece! After devising a theme, writing a short scenario and choosing music, you will design costumes using recycled materials (egg cartons, paper rolls, plastic bags etc). For inspiration you will study famous designs and discuss how these designs capture the mood of the play, musical and/or opera. In designing your costume, you will have to consider technical issues: how to make a functional (and wearable) pattern, how to join/adhere various elements of the design and above all how to make your costume expressive and original!
