Check out grad student Courtney Ohnstad’s process on textile printing: “In the previous school year at SDSU, I learned a lot about sublimation printing. While a fantastic method for printing on fabric, it is limited to synthetic fabrics. Wanting to learn about other methods for textile printing, I enrolled in a “Digital Textile Printing” class at the San Diego City
College. I heard about this class due to the fact that it is taught by an SDSU costume alumnus, Shirley Pierson. In this class, I learned that there are machines that print extremely vividly on natural fabrics. In this video, I am using a Roland direct to textile printer to permanently affix my costume rendering to a cotton canvas tote.

Congratulations to our friends at the Cygnet!!

Courtney Ohnstad, a 3rd year costume design graduate student, just completed her capstone project. When asked about her costume design for A Long Christmas Ride home, she said the favorite piece she designed was: “The minister stole. The patchwork was inspired by real research of ministers in the unitarian church. He came back from visiting Japan, so it made sense he would include some Japanese prints in it. Because this character inspires Stephen in his afterlife, it connects to the whole show with patchwork.”

On week four of rehearsals for Chess in Concert, each principal learned their entire blocking of the show one at a time on stage in one hour sessions. The stage consisted of nine squares that were nine feet apart from one another to maintain social distancing.

In this photo, Clinton Sherwood (who plays the Act One Arbiter), is learning his blocking from director Stephen Brotebeck via Zoom.

Chess in Concert streams December 3-6. Get ticket info at:
