A similar event focusing on theatrical stage make-up also took place.

Aylesbury Waterside Theatre’s Creative Learning Delivery Partner, Rebecca Godden said: “The interest in the workshops has been phenomenal and the quality of work produced by the participants has been very impressive.

“Due to demand we will be offering both workshops again, and look forward to giving a practical insight into the industry to many more students with a passion for theatre.”

Other workshops taking place over the coming months include two different theatrical stage make-up offerings with workshops for both ages 12-17 years and 18+ years.
