Join us for a really unique opportunity.

Think Singer Sargent. Paula Rego. It’s time to move on from the austerity of the life room and try your hand at the figure in costume! The Playhouse costume department offers this rare chance to have a go at painting the figure in dresses of shimmering fabrics. Furniture and props from the Playhouse stores will also be used to create a simple setting for the model.

Starting with a few light-hearted exercises to loosen up, we’ll move onto a longer pose in the afternoon. During the day there will be the chance to workshop varied techniques to find how best to create the textures and movement of cloth about the figure.
