Name Lisa Newton
About I completed my degree in June 2002 specialising in Costume but also studying set, props, lighting and theatre history. In total I have studied costume for five years trying to get involved with as many live projects as I could whilst at college. Since leaving college I have worked on various commissions within my local area as a freelancer. I am enthusiastic and dedicated to my work.

Costume Designer

Date of Birth

7 August 1980

Experience (years)





I was a member of a local theatre group called Hartlepool Stage Society for one year, my role being stage manager for the two productions they put on that year. I volunteered for Tyne and Wear Museums for a total of five months where I learnt how to properly pack, label and review the costume and textiles collection. I have made various costumes for Fancy Dress, theatre productions, for local Museums and parades. My future direction is to continue to work as a freelance costumier and possibly go into part time teaching or workshops to pass on my skills.


BA (Hons) Entertainment Design Crafts, BTEC National Diploma Design Theatre Crafts, NCFE & NCFE Advanced Certificates Drawing and Painting
