Wigs/Makeup and Boots/Shoes Technician Practicums

Overview: Wigs & Makeup Technician Practicum Program
Starting with the basics, practicum participants will learn about wig and hair types and the various construction techniques for making wig foundations and facial hair, including the skills of ventilating/knotting. Styling tools and methods for various periods and purposes will be a focus of activity. 

Makeup will play a significant part in participant-led projects, which will also include special effects. Show-based learning will occur as participants meet the practical and design requirements of supporting a production. 

Crossover mediums involving costume, millinery, and props will be explored. Participants will learn how departments like costume, lighting, and sound integrate with the wigs and makeup department to collaborate and build a production.  

Overview: Boots & Shoes Technician Practicum Program
The Boots and Shoes Practicum program builds the basic skill set required for boots and shoes work in the theatre industry. The program will develop participants’ existing experience, as well as explore new techniques adhering to the theatre industry’s safety and aesthetic standards.

Specific projects will largely be determined by the summer performance programming at Banff Centre. Project work as required by the shows will include soling, repairs, paint, alterations, and leather work.

Participants are encouraged to engage in the broad range of workshops offered by other departments during the practicum program. Exposure to a wide range of perspectives and approaches is essential to the collaborative nature of theatre.
