Lighting Design

The costume studio (025 Kantner Hall) is comprised of two teaching and production spaces for construction and fabrication of all costume components. We feature an all Bernina fleet of domestic sewing machines and sergers and a variety of specialized industrial machines. Our extensive collection of industry standard dress forms allows us to match almost every body shape. The adjoining crafts studio is equipped for working with a variety of costume craft and fabric modification techniques including an industrial dye vat and spray booth.

Costume Technology coursework offers students the opportunity to utilize our facilities to learn techniques in draping, drafting, flat pattern manipulation, sewing, tailoring, corsetry, couture sewing, leather work, and dance wear.

Costume Crafts coursework includes studies in dyeing, silk painting, silk-screening, silicone, foam sculpture and puppets, millinery, wig styling, jewelry, armor, leather masks, and thermoplastics.
