Spring | 2019

With fewer theatres holding in-house costume departments and more costume designers now working as freelance practitioners, self-taught costume designer Lydia Higginson is determined that the theatre and dance costume industry should not suffer because of this.

Funding from QEST will enable Lydia to undertake one to one pattern cutting lessons with Helen Shine, who has cut patterns for Victoria Beckham and Peter Pilotto, to elevate her practice to the next level. Lydia will build on her relationships with theatres such as Sadler's Wells and Tobacco Factory Theatres and continue to teach her techniques in workshops across the UK.
