Re: [CostumeHistoryClass] how does this course work
- Hey Jill and Debbie!
I'm not really "leading" the class, as I'm not on staff at University of
Alaska at Fairbanks, which is where the official course is from. I am an IATSE
stagehand in Wisconsin and work a lot in wardrobe doing costuming, construction
and maintenance for shows. I took the class about 4 years ago and everything
you need to do it IS already online. Since there are two of you, why not
work together to do it? Read the instructions and post the results to the list.
I'd be glad to provide you feedback and food for thought.

- Hi Ladies,
I was looking at doing this course back in the summer time but there
wasn't much activity going on. I would love to work through the course
work with you guys as well. I work at Trinity Western University as
their Costume Shop Supervisor for the Theatre department. I'm new to
this position and have very little formal theatre/costuming education
but did have the privledge of assisting an award winning costume
designer last year that the university. Between working with her and
taking a course that the chair of the department taught, I'm hooked.
Unfortunately we don't have a costume history course at our university (
but I'm hoping to eventually see some more tech course developed). I'm
very excited to be able to work through the course work, although I
maybe a bit sparatic in my 'attendance' as I have a very full semester
starting in January where I'm either designing or working on costumes
for four shows that run between January and May.
