About the course

Introduction

The course aims to develop confident and experimental practitioners who will push the boundaries of the subject of costume beyond its established traditional role.

Content

The course aims to develop confident and experimental practitioners who will push the boundaries of the subject of costume beyond its established role. Taught largely on a one to one basis, by international practitioners, experienced teachers and senior researchers, this MA will nurture your creative ideas about costume and performance.

You will design, realise and experiment with costume based performance ideas that enable you to define your inpidual voice in relation to contemporary culture and practice, while responding visually to the relevant performance context.
Beyond the understanding of performance and the role of character creation through costume, the study of Costume Design at MA level allows you to locate your practice within the wider realms of contemporary culture and art, as well as within the relevant dramatic, social and philological contexts.

The relationship between drawing, practical realisation and performance, is central to the way design is approached: ideas are developed on paper and through movement, as well as through pattern cutting, textile printing, dyeing and surface manipulation.

Practical experimentation is achieved through access to the extensive technical facilities available within the college, expanding knowledge of the uses of CAD, tailoring, print, knit and embroidery within costume. The costume studio in John Prince's Street is well equiped to enable students to develop their ideas into realisation, and expert technical support is provided for students on a weekly basis.
