The tag craft=rigger has been used for two unrelated professions:

1) Rigger (Sailing): Workshop or office of a person who makes masts, yards, sails, and cordage for sailboats and sailing ships. This is the most common definition used for this tag and the original definition on this page, though it is not commonly used in British English.

2) Rigger (Theater): workplace of a person who works on ropes, booms, lifts, hoists and the like for a stage production (film, theater, live music, etc.). (*Rigger (entertainment) on Wikipedia). This has very rarely been used, but it is the more common meaning of "rigger" in English, so there is a risk of confusion.
