Black Cassocks

I have recently moved to St Hildaís Church, Ashford as Organist and Music Director.
Whilst clearing out and finding what is what, I have realised that we have;
18 full-length worsted Black Cassocks; they are of various sizes (Child/Small Adult/Larger Adult)
button through; used and stored in a cupboard for some time, but no longer needed.
Hence they are advertised on Gumtree, trying to raise some monies for our Organ repair fund.
Please contact me if you are interested in buying.

Make-Up Artist Work Experience Required

Makeup and Cosmetics History

My name is Abby and I volunteer as a drama teacher to a special group of students. We are preparing for our production of Alice in Wonderland! We have been researching websites about acting, productions, plays and we came across your site.

I've been teaching the students how to research information online and they have been doing great! One of my girls, Donna brought in an article for me to see about makeup tips that could be resourceful to the production. I am so proud of her going above and beyond the lesson in finding it! Here is the article: Makeup and Cosmetics History

If you would add a link to it from your own website so that I can surprise them and show them that you found their work useful and interesting? They will be so proud and excited if you will. I hope it didn't hurt that I promised the group a pizza party if you added it for them :) Hope you be willing to help us with this exercise. Something smaller to us like this has a big impact on my kids!

Thank you in advance!

Voluntary Work Wanted

Jan 2014 onwards

I am writing to you to enquire whether there is any possibility of obtaining some voluntary work experience working alongside the makeup artists within your theatres. I am 18 years old and currently a student at City College in Norwich, having completed an extra year taking some additional GCSE's. I am now on the Hair and Media Make-Up level 2 Diploma course, following which I intend to apply to the London College of Fashion to study for a BA (Hons) in Hair, Make-up & Prosthetics for Performance.

I have had many compliments on my work including a retweet on one of my photos on twitter from a walking dead fan page. I have also been asked by many people to do their makeup for fancy dress parties and events.
I live locally, and would really like to broaden my knowledge by shadowing someone already working in the industry ( I am happy to do this on an unpaid basis).
I would welcome the opportunity to show you some pieces of my work and to discuss any opportunities you may be able to offer me.
I look forward to hearing from you.

We have recently started promoting and selling make up made by a company called Younique which is extremely good quality and some of it's products we thought make up artists might be interested in.

A lot of the make up is water proof and hard wearing which would be good with the heat from the theatre lights and are perfect for covering marks, for example if you need a tattoo covered.
