I am currently working as a touring wardrobe assistant on the UK and Ireland tour of ‘Shrek the Musical’, I am therefore available from February 2019. I set up quick change areas, dress a range of performers and complete emergency repairs in a calm manner. I am responsible for general maintenance, utilising skills such as hand sewing, machine sewing, hot stoning, beading, laundry and pressing. I teach local staff dressing plots showing sound communication skills.

I am confident at alterations, having graduated with a 2:1 in Fashion Design. I can hand sew as well as use an industrial sewing machine and over locker. Having worked in the wardrobe department for the last few years, I am keen to develop my costume making/dressing skills within TV and theatre.
