Join MTC staff and artists for an inspiring day of workshops and panels on Zoom. Each special guest will nurture your inner artist with insights into their theatre-making process and activities to get your creative juices flowing. You'll also have access to Q&A sessions during the day, and digital resources to use later in your classroom.

Session 2: Costume Design
11.30am - 1pm
