After years of running a cowboy shop catering for country and western and line dancing as well as theatre, my late brother semi retired just having a stall at various events, he became ill and eventually passed away. I now have a quantity of cowboy hats (150) leather belts, holsters, buckles etc along with numerous American state flags and western wall hangings (blankets). I would like to sell at a very competitive price but would consider donating some on a buy some get some free basis to a deserving group.
Any interest message me Thanks Alex

Make-Up Artist
I have recently became a fully qualified Make-Up Artist after studying Level 3 Make-Up Artistry at Worcester College of Technology and the areas I covered are; Theatrical, Fashion, Media, Casualty, Face Paining, Body Painting, Bridal, Day, Evening and Special Occasion. I am currently volunteering to do any Make-Up that Drama Groups may need for performances, shows or anything else! I am available to either do one offs or I can commit to groups to do regular Make-Up including at rehearsals and I am free most evenings to do this.
I am looking to build up my experience so all of the Make-Up I do wont be at any cost, as it will be a great help for me too!
If you know of anyone who may be interested please get in contact through this email address )
Thank you very much

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 attached some samples of recent pieces of my work which I have achieved single handed through hours of research and practice, all of which was self taught. 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,
