Work Experience: Macbeth

macbeth 1Macbeth 3

I did work experience at Nicola Killeen Textiles. Here I helped to break down costumes for the production of Macbeth at Trafalgar Studios. I primarily used cheese graters, sand paper and paint. I then assisted Costume Designer Anna Josephs during the tech week in the lead up to the opening of the show. During this time I labeled all of the costumes and hung them in the correct dressing rooms. I also did last minute shopping and further breaking down. I thoroughly enjoy the practical aspect of making costumes; nonetheless throughout the tech week of Macbeth, I thrived on the adrenaline of being on set. Seeing the selection of costumes come together for the final performance was extremely satisfying.
