Level – All

Curtains opening, prepare your actors and actresses for their live performance!

This workshop offers a fascinating insight into the realms of stage make-up and its particular techniques, including character ageing, highlighting and shading. Kryolan is renowned for theatrical products so learn from the professionals to deliver the best artistry for stage make-up. Working with the traditional grease make-up “Supracolor” this skill set will enhance your character design to achieve the best results.

Learn details of stage make-up including the application of latex pieces, waxes, crepe hair and many more make-up materials. Several demonstrations will be delivered to show the important secret illusions of theatrical make-ups from our industry experts; whilst delving into the different categories from the chorus cast and dancers to the leading roles. You will receive make-up demonstrations from your Kryolan educator followed by a practical session for you and other workshop attendees. You will learn about the important factor to consider for theatre make-up; stage lighting, costumes, wigs, size of auditorium and working with performers.

All of our Kryolan educators are current make-up artists who have been in the industry for many years. You will learn about different techniques, products and equipment to use, and about the industry itself and how you can achieve the best artistry for that particular genre of make-up.

This workshop is held at our brand new Kryolan store in Covent Garden London from 10am until 5pm. The workshops are structured with demonstration and practical sessions. All products, brushes and equipment will be provided. You will not need to bring anything with you except yourself and your camera to capture images of the lesson.
