About this Event

In this two day intensive course participants will learn about the fundamentals of working in special effects costuming in film and television from professionals with extensive experience working in this field.

The weekend will be a mixture of lecture, demonstration and hands-on learning. It is designed to give those who would like to pursue this specialist area of costuming with the knowledge and practical experience to do so.

The weekend will cover the following areas:

  • Overview of special effects costuming (including tools, safety and PPE fitting)
  • Sculpting and molding (including lecture, life cast demonstration and practical exercise in molding, leaving to set overnight)
  • Pulling the mold (from previous day)
  • Leathers and alternative building (including leather, foam, neoprene, Worbla and thermoplastics)
  • Demonstrations in thermoplastics and wet-molding
  • Working with leather (including practical exercises in leather covering and hardware)
  • On Set Working with special effects costumes lecture and demonstration

All materials required for the class will be provided, including a respirator that participants will be able to take away after the class. All that they need to bring is a pen and notepad, and provide details for the size of respirator (email will follow booking confirmation).

Participants will also be able to take away all examples they have worked on during the weekend and be provided with a certificate of completion.

The Harbour Cafe at Ildsjel will be open serving tea, coffee, breakfast/lunch items and snacks but participants are welcome to bring their own lunch and snacks if preferred.
