Mel Winning Testimonials.
The V&A Theatre Collections Education 2004 to present day
Mel Winning provides an excellent service for students of all ages. Knowlegable and approachable, her skills range from theatre make-up to fashion and photography, she can always be relied upon to offer the highest standard of professional work. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a first class workshop leader.
Education Activities Manager, Theatre Museum Covent Garden 2003- 2006
“Mel is an experienced and accomplished make-up artist. Her Knowledge of and background in performing arts is first class. At the Theatre Museum she devised and delivered workshops on theatrical make-up to family audiences and to schools, college and university groups. Mel has a unique ability to entertain and inform at the same time. A relaxed teaching approach makes complex techniques seem straightforward and accessible to young people. Groups were always excited and inspired by her workshops”.

Assistant Director Performing Arts, Kingsdale
“Mel Winning has worked successfully with BTEC Acting Students on Make-Up courses here, for the past three years. Her relationships with the students are excellent and it is a testament to her skill that students with little or no experience in this field are soon working competently using a variety of techniques. The end results from a recent workshop were fantastic and the students were justifiably proud of their achievements. I would have no hesitation in recommending her”.
