Megan Barnett

costume maker
resident artist

Meg is a freelance costume maker specialising in all things stretch.

She has been working in the costume industry since 2017 when she graduated from Arts University Bournemouth with a BA (Hons) in Costume Interpretation. The original plan was to make tutus but after starting aerial classes she stumbled into the wonderful world of circus and all things stretch! Since then she has made for aerial, pole, dance, ballroom and Latin, figure skating, and even the odd wedding piece here and there.

She loves taking a 2D design and turning it into something real. All her pieces are hand crafted from beginning to end - she drafts her own patterns, builds the base, and carefully applies the finishing touches to make a beautiful, quality costume.

Over the years she has been fortunate enough to make for a variety of people and companies ranging from individual performers, to companies such as Burn The Floor, and Strictly Theatre Co.
