    Does anyone know of any good wig making courses? I'm after a shot course over a few months or less, part time or full time it doesn't matter.

    But it neeeds to teach knotting techniques for hand making wigs, and it needs to have a recognised qualification at the end.

    I'm based in the South East, so here or in London.

    Or else does anyone know of anywhere they teach this in New Zealand or Canada? I travel quite a bit so i'd up for studying abroard.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You will find information about courses in wigs and make-up in the resources section of Stage Jobs Pro.

    If you click on 'resources' in the blue option bar, hen scroll down and click on 'makeup Wigs Training'.

    Hope this helps.

    The wig academy in Bournmouth I think is the best.

    Hi Kate,

    Barbie Burrows runs a wig making school with courses of varying length in Worthing (I believe). She is the retired manager of the wig department at Glyndebourne Opera and very well regarded by the industry.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi,

    Sorry - it's Eastbourne not Worthing as I put before - but the school exists and the courses are running!

    Is there anywhere in London that offers the City and Guild Wig Making Course?
