Tutor - Ruth Watkin - November '24 - "Stays Edition"

Ruth has been working as a costume maker for over a decade, after training in Theatre Design at Nottingham Trent University. Where she has since frequently returned to, to teach on their Costume Design and Construction course as a principal lecturer. As a freelancer, she has been lucky enough to have had the chance to make costumes for many places including West End theatre shows and film productions for Netflix, HBO and Amazon Prime. However, her main passion is for historical costume, and following this she has produced historical reproductions and educational garments for many major museums including Historic Royal Palaces, The Royal Armouries, Historic Scotland, English Heritage and The National Trust.
