Surrey Arts Wardrobe
Surrey Arts Wardrobe hires costumes and small props to schools, groups and professional companies for everything from school shows and large scale theatre productions to themed events and costume parades. Surrey Arts Wardrobe is not a members only service, but If your school becomes a member you will receive various benefits and discounts.
Workshops and educational support
Surrey Arts Wardrobe has launched a series of educational workshops that can be tailored to the needs of your curriculum. This includes options for sessions both in your own school, or for small groups, within our wardrobe space at Surrey Arts.
Drama Costume Workshops
Surrey Arts Wardrobe also provide Drama Costume Workshops support and whole class drama workshops at your school for Key stage 3, 4 and 5 students:
- Explain the role of costume within the film, television and theatre industries.
- Look at different interpretations of the same play throughout different time periods, how costumes can 'make' a show.
- Bring in examples and displays to provide an engaging hands-on learning experience.
Small group workshops based within the wardrobe for costume or drama students. We can talk your students through how to costume a production from planning stages through to creating believable characters, including how correct accessorising can be the key to successful costuming.
Students will also be introduced to budgeting, costume care and the importance of correct historical context within design.
