Young Curators - Heritage Costume Design

Young Curators is for 13-19 year olds who are interested in learning more about art and how galleries and museums work. The group meet to work on projects related to upcoming exhibitions. This might be working with a professional artist to create your own artworks to be displayed in the gallery, or working with the learning and curatorial team to develop an exhibition. The Lightbox is an Arts Award centre, so you can also work towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold Arts Award. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, get creative and have something unique on your CV

Heritage Costume Design

In these sessions, you will work with artist Cate Field to study Costume design and our Woking’s Story exhibition to design and make your own costumes.  You will learn how to turn ideas into reality using the collection and look specifically at the way that the Tudors and Victorians dressed when they were walking about the streets of Woking.  You will look at fashion illustration to inspire your designs and discover how you can use fabric to create interesting detail.  Cate will help you to design your own garment which will be displayed first and then integrated into our costume collection for visitors to use.

There will be sewing involved in these workshops but no previous experience is required, just a willingness to learn.
