Glove Projects in Costume Accessories class!

As a costumer for PlayMakers Repertory Company, I teach one course a semester in the costume production graduate program at UNC-Chapel Hill, and this semester that class is called Costume Accessories. My students recently presented their first projects, gloves!

Great work, y'all! The class moved on to a new topic yesterday, called "Small Hand Props," which are exactly that--small hand props which often fall to the craftsperson to make because the costume designer, not the set designer, is responsible for their look--reticules, hand fans, chatelaines, winter muffs, unusual spectacles/goggles, etc.
