Theatre Costume

I trained From 2000 – 2006 with the exceptionally talented Costume maker Dee Sheehan learning more about the skill of making costume for theatre and film.  As a maker in the small workroom, under the guidance of Dee, working for long hours I learned many sewing techniques that have served me through the years.

The pictures below show some of the costumes that I worked on as a maker at The Glyndebourne Opera House and also costumes that I have created through my own commissions, where I have been the pattern cutter as-well as maker
