Pupils at Christ College were treated to a brilliant evening on Saturday night, with Professional Make-Up and Hair Artist, Julie Fox Pritchard and her team, Claire Williams and Babs Roberts. They worked with pupils on techniques used in Television, Film and Theatre.
It was a fantastic opportunity for pupils to work with Make-Up and Hair Artists that are working in the industry – everything from Doctor Who to the latest Cinderella Film. The ladies worked on 6 students, working on hair/make-up styles of the 1940’s/60’s, a ‘cut throat’ effect, a male tramp/burnt arm, a male with a beaten up face and a female tramp with cold sores, dry lips etc . It was fantastic for the students to have such a professional insight into the skilled work from industry professionals.
The evening was filmed so that the audience could see the techniques close-up with professional TV Presenter and Camera Man Graham Pritchard providing exceptional close up images. It was a great evening and students learned a huge amount about the industry, with Julie, Claire and Babs answering questions about their wealth of experiences.
