Gorton Studio

Gorton Studio was the first specialist prosthetics and make-up FX school in Europe and has led the way in teaching the subject since 2003.

Screen prosthetics is a practical discipline in a fast moving industry. To succeed in it, you need to master the techniques required by today’s employers, learn how the industry works and know how your role fits into it. To teach these essential elements we bring the industry into the classroom, and take the classroom into the industry.

We take pride in giving genuine value for money, de-mystifying a subject that’s sometimes misrepresented in the education arena, and equipping our students to hit the professional ground running as soon as they graduate.


Multi-award winning Millennium FX is our sister company, run by Neill Gorton and his co-director Rob Mayor. It’s Europe’s biggest and busiest screen prosthetics company with many hundreds of credits to its name, and its workshops are next door to Gorton Studio Chesham!
