This course is dedicated to students who want to get an overview of the process of costume design for the performance industry, along with an understanding of the important role that costuming plays in character creation. During the first week, students will investigate the world of costumes by analysing and discussing images, videos, and readings to discover how historical factors, character personalities, proportion, colour, materials, and tailoring techniques play into the process. They will make several visits to tailors’ shops, theatres, and costume archives. During the second week, students will work with into groups to design a portfolio of costumes for a live performance or a film. Depending on available time and participants’ skills, it might also be possible to create a costume prototype.
This course is intended for students with some background in that specific subject area and for students attending or having completed one or two years of their university studies in Art and Design who are keen on building upon this through handson training experience.
