Guest teacher David Hansen

Theatrical milliner David Hansen has been making headwear for over 16 years. In that time he has made hats, headdresses, jewellery and costumes for the Australian Ballet, Royal Ballet, Royal Opera, Opera Australia and the Imperial Ice Stars.
David is currently the Wardrobe Supervisor at Arts Centre Melbourne - the largest theatre complex in Australia - and works closely with the Australian Ballet when they perform.
David has also worked extensively as a Head of Backstage Wardrobe on productions including La Boheme, Love in the Age of Therapy, La Traviata (Oz Opera) My Fair Lady, A Little Night Music, the Mikado, the Merry Widow (Opera Australia) and Il Trovatore (Macau International Music Festival). In April last year, David managed the backstage wardrobe on Opera Australia's production of La Traviata on Sydney Harbour, performed outside on a floating stage with a nine metre tall chandelier!
In his spare time David builds tutus, and with his exposure to only the best, and knowledge of working with them, they are amazing.
