What you will learn on this course

We'll create outlandish headgear and other creative costumery, inspired by the intriguing outfits showcased in current exhibitions at MAC. We'll use a variety of materials and techniques to bring out your personality, and show off the results in procession around the building.

Learners will gain visual art, design and craft making skills in a range of 2D and 3D techniques, and will use a range of art equipment and materials to gain an understanding of creating art work through different methods including drawing, painting, printing and textile.

Who is this course for?
