Brushstroke Facilities always impress

We recognised early on how important it is to learn in the right environment. For this reason, we based our make-up training within a film-set environment – Shepperton Studios – and were the first to do so. We also have premises in nearby Pinewood Studios. Quite simply, we enable our students to experience life right at the heart of the busy working world of entertainment. So, on their first day as fully-qualified make-up artists, they know what to expect when they walk on-set. Equally important, the rest of the crew can have confidence in their abilities.

As a student you’ll find a professional and welcoming environment at Brushstroke make-up training. And the kind of buzz that comes from being right in the middle of the performing arts.

The Orson Welles Building

Brushstroke shares the large Orson Welles building with other ‘behind-the-scenes’ companies such as post production and 3D cyber scanning. This is where the hard work on all our courses takes place, from the 2 Year Make-Up and Hair to the 3 Month Fashion Make-Up and Hair.  Over the years our make-up studios have been used by many productions for filming and photoshoots, including the 2003 feature film, Calendar Girls.

Our light and spacious studios are well-equipped with 4 large make-up rooms plus a special effects and prosthetics workshop complete with life casting and sculpting facilities. There is a separate wig room with training heads, stands, blocks and equipment to make wigs from scratch. We also have a photographic studio with high definition (HD) camera, various backdrops and lighting options. This allows the students to see how their work looks ‘on screen’ helping them perfect their skills as well as build their portfolios.

We ensure our equipment and materials are constantly up to date with industry needs and trends. For example, the range of materials and techniques now available to create individual prosthetics means we rarely use our huge mould oven.

Although there’s a great canteen at Shepperton, we also have a kitchen for the students to grab a coffee or make themselves lunch. Finally, the Brushstroke team works out of a large admin office which is nearby and welcoming to everyone.
