Watch and learn…

September 15, 2009

Principal form of distraction this afternoon? The online video tour of the National Theatre on London’s South Bank.
This amazing online resource lets you watch a whole glut of video clips about all the departments of one of London’s largest and best loved theatres.

Navigation is by floor plan, and of course I headed straight up to the Costume Department on the 4th floor. Watch and learn as the costume department staff talk you through a host of topics including buying costumes from vintage shops, researching period costumes and patterns, the costume design process and more. And up on the fifth floor you can pop into the Dye room to see how costumes are distressed and broken down, and swing past the Costume Props department.

It’s definitely a site to browse with a cup of coffee- once you venture in you may not come out for some time…
