Backstage Video: RSC Stitch In Time Campaign | The Future of Costume Making

Stage Directions • Industry News • June 16, 2021

Here is the final Stitch In Time Campaign update from the Royal Shakespeare Company, with narration by actor Harriet Walter. The RSC’s restored and redeveloped Costume Workshop is now complete. Here is that video:

The RSC’s award-winning costumes are essential to creating the very best theatre, but the workshops where its craftsmen and women work were no longer fit for purpose. They needed to give its team of skilled costume makers 21st century workshops with the space, light, and facilities to help them continue to create stunning costumes for you and audiences around the world to enjoy.

The RSC is delighted to announce that they have achieved its public fundraising target of £3million to support the restoration and redevelopment of its Costume Workshop. Over 30,000 people have supported the Stitch In Time Campaign, as well as grants from major public funders, and they would like to thank all of the generous supporters.
