Costuming with Ruth Sears
January 12, 2020

Ruth has been a seamstress for over 50 years, and a costumer for about 45 of them.  Ruth has worked for the Stanford drama department, the Santa Cruz Children's Theater, and just about every theater company in Josephine County.  She enjoys costuming period pieces, and her class will include how to research fashion through the ages.  We will also explore how to make those "weird" costumes:  lobsters who tap dance, fish who have to eat actors, Siamese twins, or two-headed cocktail lounge singers... and yes, Ruth has made all of those!  Join us for some inspiration and learn some of her techniques!
