'Englishwomen's Headwear 1100-1500'

A weekend course with Author, Sarah Thursfield

Saturday 15th-Sunday 16th
February, 10am-4pm
£50 (£40 for Friends)


Don't miss an exciting brand new course, which will be held at Dronfield Hall Barn this February.

We're delighted to welcome Sarah Thursfield, author of ‘The Medieval Tailor’s Assistant’, to lead 'Englishwomen's Headwear 1100-1500'.

Join Sarah to learn what ladies and women really wore - including 101 ways to wrap a piece of linen, the gender of the hood, the importance of the hairnet, and one or two surprises about the ‘hennin’.  Learn how to make the component parts, how to wear them, how we know, and why it’s worth getting it right.

This workshop will be held on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th February 2020, 10am until 4pm, in the Courtyard Room at the Barn. Bring your own lunch or buy in the coffee shop. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided in the price.
Please note: this workshop is limited to a maximum of 10 places - book now to avoid missing out!

A basic sewing kit is suggested, although sewing is not a requirement – but please bring a note book, together with any materials you thinking of using, or items you wish to discuss.
