Ladies Cutter

  • Deadline for applications : Fri 23 Aug 2019 12:00pm

Welsh National Opera shares the power of live opera with audiences and communities across Wales and England – in theatres, in neighbourhoods and online. 

We are seeking a Ladies Cutter with a proven, significant track record and experience of working in a professional workroom as a cutter. Experience working with period costumes, including corsets, is essential.

The successful candidate will be skilled in drafting patterns from designs supplied by the designer, either from explicit working drawings or using drafting pattern costume books, in discussion with the designer and Head of Costume. 

The role is responsible for overseeing the work of the Senior Costume Maker and Costume Makers and involves attending stage rehearsals as required and occasional attendance at fittings away from home base.
