Fashion! Costume! Sewing!

Interested in taking a hands-on class to get your creativity flowing? Did you know Swarthmore has a costume design class offered by the Department of Theater???! This course focuses on introducing methods that apply to designing costumes for stage, but the skills will serve you in many other areas. Past students have combined this class with other majors in engineering, sociology, art, architecture and more to create unique learning projects for themselves! You will learn basic sketching for costume and learn how to sew! The course serves all students regardless of prior experience in theater production. No prerequisites!
Fulfills a general requirement for all theater majors and minors.

Class meets Tuesdays/Thursdays at 1:15PM. Thursday classes are hands on labs that will walk you through several steps of working on costume projects from start to finish. Class meets in LPAC 310 and the Costume shop.
