This is a hands-on, practical course and you will be expected to participate in all the practical projects, both individually and working with others on the course.
You will be given a condensed version of the design process that full-time students at the Royal Conservatoire experience and you will progress through structured stages of set and costume design, including:

communication of set designs
communication of costume designs
Throughout this course you will also learn how the set and costume strand of the BA Production Arts and Design at the Royal Conservatoire prepares students to become professional set and costume designers.
