FASHION and clothing student Faye Capstick, from Bolton-by-Bowland, is taking part in an exciting exhibition of Art and Theatrical Costume at Skipton Castle this weekend.

Together with fellow fashion students at Craven College and Granary Arts adult students, Faye, who previously attended Bowland High School, will showcase specially created costumes depicting life in 1830s Paris.

The theatrical costumes were meticulously researched and made for the classic French film “Les Enfants du Paradis”. They will be on show in the Banqueting Hall at Skipton Castle this weekend, September 14th to 16th.

“It is a fabulous venue and the fashion students are delighted to share with Granary Arts in this educational event,” said Craven College fashion tutor Joan Murray.

On Friday evening there will be a short mime performed by Daniel Lempen, of Lempen Puppets, wearing the costume for the main character, Baptiste Debureau, with other actors wearing various costumes and creating the Parisian theatrical world of 1830. Anyone wishing to attend this event can contact Roma Crosland by e-mail to granary@romacrossland.plus.com or by phoning 01756 709627.

Places are still available on Craven College’s Extended Diploma and Foundation Degree in Fashion and Clothing plus a wide range of part-time evening art, design and photography courses. Full details visit www.craven-college.ac.uk or call 01756 791411.
