Leah Giblin

BFA (Costume)

I have worked in costume since graduating from NIDA in 2009 with a Bachelor of Performing Arts (Production Crafts, Costume). My work has primarily included costume design, costume supervision, art finishing and costume-making for film, television, theatre and includes collaborations with contemporary artists for the Sydney Biennale. An avid interest in natural dyeing and waste reduction has also led to teaching a series of workshops on using food and garden waste to make natural dyes.
