Delving in to the Royal Opera House costume stores

29 January 2019

Discovering the fascinating world of the scenic artists and craftspeople who create the stunning sets and scenery for the world-famous Royal Opera House, the Year 11 Textiles students went on a tour of the Bob and Tamar Manoukian Production Workshop and Costume Centre on Tuesday 29 January. They took part in a Costume Construction (BA Hons) workshop, learning how to breakdown, distress and age a garment to tell the story of a character – even making their own imitation blood!
