Edinburgh College of Art: The Birds (BDA_UK01)

     
Undergraduate students on the Performance Costume course at Edinburgh College of Art were asked to design costumes and sets for Aristophanes’ play The Birds, making it accessible for a modern audience. While researching their designs, they also took part in weekly workshops led by a textile artist, where a range of new textile manipulation techniques were presented. Students used these ideas in their final costume designs. Students then went on to make up one of their costume designs. These costumes were exhibited as a static display in college (February 2007) and again, this time on performers, at the college’s annual Fashion Show (May 2007). A selection of this student design work is presented here.
