Costume and Property Craft Studio
The basement space is where we create craft items for the stage. Due to the nature of the activities (e.g., painting and dyeing and molding and casting), it may be messy and/or dangerous. The space includes equipment and chemicals that require special training and so is only available to faculty, staff and students in the Theater and Dance department.
