Wigs and Makeup Technician Practicum






This is presently the only program in Canada with a hands-on, self-led learning atmosphere where mentor support is provided. Starting with the basics, practicum participants will learn about wig and hair types and the various construction techniques for making wig foundations and facial hair, including the skills of ventilating/knotting. Styling tools and methods for various periods and purposes will be a focus of activity. 

Makeup will play a significant part in participant-led projects, which will also include special effects. Show-based learning will occur as participants meet the practical and design requirements of supporting a production. 

Crossover mediums involving costume, millinery, and props will be explored. Participants will learn how departments like costume, lighting, and sound integrate with the wigs and makeup department to collaborate and build a production.  

What does the program offer?

Practicums will benefit from a one-on-one training introduction to what the current wig and makeup industry requires as a profession. Experience will be gained through working on show-related projects and performances that may include opera, drama, and dance. 

Workshops will be offered within the program, focusing on special effects makeup, lighting, sound, costume, millinery, and how these disciplines interrelate. These workshops will enhance the skills and understanding of the wigs and makeup technician, and will cover what is required to meet the practical and design requirements of a show. Participants will also have the opportunity to culminate their accumulated skills to collaborate on a photo shoot project.

Who should apply?

Ideal applicants will enjoy working with their hands, and have patience and an eye for detail. Visual arts experience is an asset.

Applicants should have a desire to work with people in a collaborative manner, an appreciation for creativity, resourcefulness, and ingenuity. A positive and curious attitude and a tendency toward organization are also helpful.

Dates: May 07 - August 06, 2019

Organic Sequence





Organic Sequence Workshop

(incorporating physical, ensemble and action techniques)

Nicolette Kay,  Artistic Director New Shoes Theatre,  will run the workshop.

The workshop is inspired by the method of Stanislavski and Eastern European theatre. The outcome achieves a physical and psychological connection between actors, which can create a valuable system of communication, focussing on impulse. All aspects of the technique can be utilised in future text and physical work.

The technique provides the opportunity for actors to extend their dynamic range.

The workshop will run from 30th July – 3rd August, 10am-4pm near Lambeth Bridge in a popup space which is why we are only charging £100 for the week!

The workshop will be very physical and loose clothing is required.

We are committed to diversity and equality of opportunity. We welcome applications from the widest diversity of backgrounds, culture and experience.
