Costume Workshops

Costume workshops happen throughout the year focused either on our gigging wardrobe or our carnival extravaganza!

If you are feeling crafty, creative, or just plain curious, then please come and join us at any of our workshops and 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’…

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

You don’t need to be participating in carnival as a dancer or drummer.

LSS can also arrange formal internships for art and fashion students to help towards degrees. Come down and get your hands feathered, glittered and hot glued, and help us build costumes – we welcome and appreciate any help.

Costume Headquarters address is:
The Biscuit Factory/Tower Business complex
Unit B201.4,
100 Clements Rd,
London, SE16 4DG

Keep an eye out on this page as we are always updating information here!
