About me

I am a costume and wardrobe supervisor currently based in Cambridge but happy to travel for work. I have an HND in Theatre Costume Interpretation from Edinburgh's Telford College and several years working within the industry.

I worked on multiple Fringe productions and underwent several work experience placements while studying in Edinburgh and have had regular work in theatre since graduating in 2012.

At the moment I work predominantly in running wardrobe, which I thoroughly enjoy, particularly on touring productions. I am also a strong sewer and am confident maintaining and repairing costumes to a high standard.

I am extremely passionate about and dedicated to my work. I work exceptionally hard to achieve the best results possible and am always looking for ways to expand upon the skills I have gained through training and work experience. At the moment I am aiming to improve my skills with hair and wigs by practising new styles and techniques with the aid of books and online tutorials and learning from the fantastic wigs professionals I am privileged to work with.

Additional Skills

-Strong costume making, repair and alteration skills

-Knowledge of fitting procedures

-Experience of writing running plots and laundry lists

-Confident with extremely quick and not so quick costume changes!

-Experience of laundering and maintaining a large range or garments and fabrics

-Basic wigs skills

-Strong and friendly team player

-Able to manage large workloads, stressful situations and changes of priorities

-Confident in supervisory roles when work needs to be delegated and instruction given

-Strong computer skills and experience of using Microsoft Office to produce documents such as invoices and accounts

- First Aid at Work trained
