    Hi, I'm currently in sixth form and afterwards want to go and study costume design. Whilst I have work to show in an art portfolio from school, I don't have any out of school experience in costume and was wondering if anyone knew of somewhere in greater Manchester (preferable close to Trafford) I could volunteer at either as part of my schools COPE placement on Wednesday afternoons or as a work experience week later in the year? Thankyou

    Why don't you approach local theatres and amateur theatre groups (probably smaller ones rather than the Opera House etc!) and ask if you can help? If you have actual costume-making skills (sewing etc) I'm sure they'd be glad of the (free) help! Maybe in your email or when you go to see them, send/take some pictures of your designs so they know you're serious?
