Costume Workshop

Home » Newsroom » Costume Workshop

Recently, Sascha Gilmour went to a fantastic costume workshop in Audlem. The Audlem website ( a very close relative of the Chelford website) had advertised the event.

For anyone interested in fashion and textiles or anyone who has ever watched costume dramas and wondered how the elaborate dresses are made, this was a wonderful opportunity.

Sascha found that some really unusual materials, such as bin liners, can be fashioned into convincing period costumes.

"It was a really great morning spent creating these costumes and I'd recommend it to anyone interested in period costume / fashion / anything creative really!
Thank you for suggesting this to me, I'm really grateful for having gone along. "

If you would like to make your own full size period costume with the course leader, Monique Hollinshead. Please contact us here editor@chelfordvillage.com . If there is sufficient demand, we will put on a similar event at cost.

Monique has been making costumes for theatre, film and television for 25 years. She has also taught costume at Leeds University and has run workshops for schools in the field of design for performance. Click on Sascha's pictures to see in detail what amazing things can be made from simple materials.
