Do you love living history? Would you like to participate in a living history event but aren’t sure where to start? This three-part presentation shows how one can fit into the past for future events.
1) Discover how to get started, including an overview of various events, and the different supplies they require.
2) Explore the fit of replica 1770s and 1790s garments and to discover how they differ from modern clothing.
3) And leave with a few basic sewing skills in preparation for making a simple accessory.
