Registration for Costume Symposium 2018 has ended.

Three Day Worbla & EVA Foam Workshop, July 25 – 27, 2018

Where/ hosted by:
Utah Shakespeare Festival, Cedar City, Utah


Join Becka Noel and Dhareza Maramis for a workshop providing instructions for basic and advanced techniques for working with Worbla. The class will consist of creating a bracer (or other similar piece) and as other techniques are learned, adding detail.  The course will cover how to create a pattern for armor and transfer to Worbla, including how to form, seal, paint, and add attachments.  A finished breastplate can be made during this symposium, just to give an example of what can be created in 24 hours.  

The schedule will also allow for viewing productions, backstage tours and social time away from the classroom for the entire group.
