Natasha Dodsworth has the unique experience of having trained on the course she now leads. Since graduating in 1999, she has worked extensively in the costume world in roles as diverse as personal tailoress to pop star Prince, to a wardrobe mistress, to the foremost touring chamber opera company in Britain. Both roles led to major international travel across the US, Europe and the Far East. Natasha started her career as an alteration hand in the costume workrooms of the National Theatre, her first professional job.
As a freelance costume and wig maker, she has worked for major West End productions and for international cruise lines on productions such as The Lion King, Mama Mia, Burn the Floor and Jersey Boys.
