DO YOU HAVE A CUSTOM PROJECT IN MIND?

Do you have any crafty UFOs in your home- Unfinished Objects? Do you have a Pinterest board that just keeps growing? Have you been working on your home but need that last custom piece to complete it? Then Cincinnati Shakespeare's team of talented artisans is at the rescue in a new program called SHAKES MAKES! We have costume, scenic, props, and more designers who are ready to help make your craft and homemade project a reality!

Here is how it works:
1) Pick a special project! Look around your home, in your heart, on your Pinterest board, or on the above webpage for inspiration.
2) Click here to access the online form. Describe your project in the form. The more details you can share, the better.
3) Upload any photos of inspiration, unfinished projects in your home, or materials you want incorporated.
4) A member of our team will be in touch in a few days to ask any follow up questions needed.
5) We will share a Donation Request Amount and Project Plan with you. Keep in mind that this will cover our costs to hand make your project AND support Cincinnati Shakespeare Company during this difficult time. A portion of your donation will be tax deductible.
6) Give your OK and we will get to work!

A few things to keep in mind:
-We are in the middle of a pandemic and the health and safety of you and our team is our highest priority. That means that projects that require home visits or extended in person time (like major alterations) may not be possible right now. But it can't hurt to explain your project below and to include those details. We will be in touch if we feel that social distancing or safety would be an issue at this time.
-In the form, we ask for you to share the budget range you had in mind for this project. Anything you can share here will help us both know the feasibility of the project.
-Cincinnati Shakespeare is a non-profit theater which has faced 6 months of closure and is likely looking at much longer. Your support of our production artisans is vital to our future and to keeping artists in Cincinnati employed. Thank you in advance!
