Introduction to Costume Design

IP: Design (Costume)

Suitable for students commencing their HSC in Term Four 2023, embarking on their HSC Drama Individual Project: Design (Costume)

Designer Imogen Ross explores the essential principles of costume design and offers starting points for theatre in relation to approaching the individual project.

This design workshop includes practical activities and gives students the chance to examine a professional costume designer’s portfolio. During the workshop students will be introduced to the:

  • process of designing costumes from initial design ideas to the final costume on stage,
  • elements that make an effective costume design,
  • role of costume design in the overall production,
  • tools available to the costume designer: line, colour and texture.

This workshop is intended to help you create design concepts through costume theory and a practical exploration of design techniques, guided by a Belvoir artist. Artists delivering this workshop will not be providing guidance on specifics of the HSC Individual Project (IP) requirements. For information on assessment requirements for your project you should consult your teacher.
