Katherine La Pietra comes back to Common Ground after teaching last year’s very successful Renaissance Costuming class and a myriad of puppet creating classes. She is a Professor of Theatre at Ferris State University in Michigan where she serves as the Performance Professor and as the Costume Designer. She has wondrously managed to make a ‘living’ as a Theatre Artist for most of her life-including the ‘adult’ years. She has taught theatre for over 25 years, directed over 50 shows, and has worked professionally as a designer, director, technician and performer. She encourages everyone to follow their bliss and find joyful things to do-whether they are playing music, building a cabin, planting seeds or planting ideas.
