Performance Costume

Our unique programme teaches costume making and design. Our curriculum includes life drawing, textiles, millinery, set design, model making and puppetry. You will be encouraged to be an innovative, individual and adaptable designer and maker. Our programme is highly respected by the industry, demonstrated by our impressive graduate employment rates and the international profile of alumni work. Performance costume designers' ideas can respond to the written and spoken word, music, movement, location or historic period through concept, colour, cut and texture. You will learn to become skilled at producing accurate recreations of costume as well as expressing imaginative flair. Performance costume crosses a range of art forms including theatre, dance, opera, television, film, performance art, music video and installation. We encourage innovative and individual creative responses while balancing a strong craft and technical expertise. We have many links with the film and stage industry providing invaluable work experience for students while you study, giving you the best chance of employment on graduation. Integrated with the practical studio work, Design & Screen Cultures courses provide a contextual and theoretical understanding of the holistic nature of contemporary design.
