I made this piece for the unit ‘Concepts in Context’. The designer was Rosalie Tyback, an alumni of the course, and the theme was Commedia dell’arte – a type of traditional Italian theatre. I was given the design and had to make almost all aspects of it, including the hat and ruff, although two other 2nd year’s were given the role of supervisor and they sourced the tights and shoes. These were used in a performance created for Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival 2013, directed by Lorna Reese.
