Costume Making Workshops
Costume Workshops

(This page is updated every Sunday for the week ahead.)



Wednesday 2nd 

Carron Make up: Contouring*
Wednesday 10th Glow Join us for tonight’s workshop from 7-9pm where we will be touching up our current favourites and “blinging” more of our classics out from retirement. Don’t worry if sewing is not your best skill – there are plenty of jobs to go round!
Tuesday 16th Carron Make up: Eyes, lashes & highlighting*
Wednesday 24th Glow Restoring costumes for upcoming performances.

*For this months two make up workshops Jo will be teaching techniques on how to apply your stage make up for regular shows (not carnival). That means the make up will be colourful but not too over the top and more about the basics of contouring, lashes and eye make up, so that you can then experiment yourself but still have a strong basis and helpful guidelines. Everybody’s face is different but Jo will aim to give you some skills to develop further in your own time so that it will benefit not only your stage and carnival make up, but also your every day face.

Costume and make up workshops are held at our Costume Headquarters:

Eurolink Business Centre
Unit 15
49 Effra Road
Brixton, London

Before attending, let us know you are coming, by dropping us a line at or check back here for changes the Sunday before scheduled dates. There is no buzzer, we will need to expect you to let you in.

LSS Performance group members can arrange collection and return of costumes in circulation on these dates.

Clients wanting to hire costumes may find that hires/sales are more easily arranged baring these dates in mind.

Costume Workshops

Costume workshops happen throughout the year and are focused either on our year round gigs or our carnival tour.

If you are feeling crafty, creative, or just plain curious, then please come and join us at any of our workshops.  You can learn some new skills, or just polish up on your current ones. Our costume making involves sewing, cutting, beading, sticking and any number of other ‘ings’…

These are open to anyone wanting to take part in costume making even if not registered to take part on our carnival tour and you don’t need to be a member or dancer or drummer.

No matter what your skill level, there’s always an opportunity to get involved.
The glue guns are warmed up and ready to go!

Make up Workshops

We  are currently building a team of volunteer that want to explore, practice and share their make up skills. These are not tutor led but co-ordinated by volunteers with an interest in developing skills in this area.

If you would like to volunteer to do performers make up towards gigs and events please contact the
