Children’s Costume Making Workshops

With Tamsin Thorne

Saturday 16th July 2011

Morning. Age 8 plus. Calling all ’Eco Warriors, prepare for battle! Make your own set of decorative body armour using cardboard, paper and recycled packaging. Design your own personal crest or emblem and create a set of body armour embellished with 3D decoupage using collage, scraffito and paint techniques. Are you inspired by the ruthless romans, the groovy greeks, or the viscious vikings? This workshop is not just for boys, also calling out to all budding Boudiccas…

Afternoon. Age 5 plus. Junior ’Eco Warriors’ can join Tamsin in the afternoon to decorate and embellish a sword and shield set using paper, card, recycled packaging, collage and paint.

Tamsin trained in textile design at Loughborough College of Art and Design, and has worked as a costume designer and maker in film and TV. She recently launched her own collection of costume accessories for children. Tamsin also teaches short courses in embellishment and customizing for clothing at Central St. Martins, London.

Look out for ‘Wings and Petals’- another summer workshop to follow with Tamsin Thorne
