Intro to Costumes Workshop

Have you been interested in how costumes appear on screen from concept through creation? It’s actually a team effort! Come learn about the different qualifications & positions within the Costume department including the buyers and builders in prep, through to the on-set skills required to realize the vision of the Costume Designer.
