Theatrical & Media Make-up
An exciting and unique learning experience with an opportunity to work with big names in film, theatre, television and fashion anywhere in the world is right here, on your doorstep, at Craven College.
Craven College is the only college in Yorkshire who train students in theatrical and media make-up to sculpt, mould and create bespoke prosthetic appliances for the media industry. Students do not simply learn to apply pieces but the whole process of making bespoke pieces which turn actors into figures from another historical age, film fantasy, science fiction or horror movie characters. Special effects are also integrated into projects for fashion and avant-garde make-up giving students the opportunity to push the boundaries of make-up and allowing them to gain the widest range of technical experience in preparation for employment. Student Stefanie Kemp has won a prestigious place at the London College of Fashion for 2012.
The expert lecturers are industry experienced make-up artists from all areas of the media. Natasha Jordan, Course Leader, is a leading, world renowned, make-up artist who has worked on shows for Take That, shoots with celebrity clients including Vivienne Westwood amongst others. Natasha is one of three industry experts who write the standards with the government authority Habia UK which all UK qualifications in make-up are currently based on. Natasha also works as the UK make-up artist for Habia Japan which means her students have benefitted from student exchange programmes and workshops with Japan's number one, award winning, make-up artist Kei Yamaguchi. A new addition to the College’s Theatrical and Media Make-up team is Ellie Morley who has worked as a sculptor for the famous Madame Tussauds.
Excellent industry connections including visits from Tokyo and London based experts mean students cover a wide range of make-up techniques including fashion and photographic, airbrushing make-up, injury simulation, wigs and hairpieces and the opportunity to study make-up from different periods and cultures.
If a career as a theatrical and media make-up artist appeals to you, places are still available for September 2012 on the Level 3 Diploma and Foundation Degree courses for students of any age with a passion for the subject. There is also an open event for higher education on 27 June 5-7pm at the Aireville Campus. Contact Natasha on 01756 791 411 or email email@example.com and arrange a chat about your options and a visit to the theatrical and media make- up studio to see the fantastic work the students are producing.
