Help me make a codpiece!

I am doing a costume course at the Northern College of Costume in York and need help being able to fund my living costs there.

We did it!

On 30th Aug 2015 we successfully raised £75 with 6 supporters in 56 days

About my project...

I recently completed a degree in Drama & Theatre Practice at The University of Hull (2:1 BA Hons!), during the course, I got the bug for costume making. After 2 costume modules and plenty of sewing for public performances*, I decided to take this passion further and I successfully applied for one of 8 places at the Northern College of Costume. 

I will be starting a 15-week intensive course, this July, where I will be studying and making period costumes ranging from the 17th to 20th centuries, creating Tudor tunics, Darcy dress and all manner of glorious garments suitable for theatre and film . I will be learning new techniques and styles, culminating in an exhibition and a professional placement.

There's no such thing as a free lucet (terrible fabric pun!) and I'm in need of financial support to help pay for my living costs and turn a hobby into a career. Therefore, I would be so thankful for any gracious donations you could make, which I fully intend to repay through hard work and, with a thread of luck, a job in theatre costume making! 


*The above picture is a costume I made for the production of Alice at The University of Hull, 2013. The costume is for the caterpillar and is made out of three lampshades.
