Anne Redish Presents: “Loyalist Period Clothing”

March 10, 2018 - 13:30 - 16:30

NOTE: Please contact Sir Guy Carleton Branch by March 1, 2018  if you wish to attend.[email protected]
Become immersed in the fiction, facts and feel of clothing of the time of the Loyalists (late 1700s – early 1800s). Using clothing as a gateway, we can learn about the day to day details of their lives. Clothing can tell us about the people, their heritage, their work, and give us information about their crops and industry. If we choose to do our best to dress as they would have, it may help us to imagine what it would be like as a ‘Loyalist immigrant or refugee’ to be in their ‘shoes’, or petticoat, or cap!
Bring or wear your Loyalist attire to contribute to the discussion! If it no longer fits or if you do not intend to use it again, that’s OK. Anne will discuss how it might be improved or altered, starting with how she wishes to improve her own. And bring your camera to take close-up images of the items and resources you will see!
A second, hands-on Workshop with Anne is planned for the future at which participants will have access to patterns, supplies and instructions to make their own period clothing.
