Woodhorn Museum Ashington
Tudor Costume Design- Bring History to Life.
As my Costume Talk/Lecture at Woodhorn on Mothering Sunday 10th March 2013 proved so popular I was asked to present it again in June 2013. So this presentation in October 2013 is the second return of my very popular talk – it is scheduled as part of history week at the Woodhorn Museum in Ashington.
It includes information about the design/construction and inspiration for my 16th Century inspired historical gowns, as well as a brief and sometimes humorous history of the people who wore them.
Integral to the event is a display of my four costumes on mannequins with headdresses, fans, underwear and jewellery – costumes for Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots and Anne Boleyn are included. There is also a personal appearance by King Henry VIII in full regalia. My talk is to be presented twice on Sunday 27th October at 11.30 am and 2 pm. Ticket price: £4 for my talk. Booking is advised.
Tickets available from Woodhorn Museum who is hosting the event. For further information about my talk please visit the Woodhorn website – http://www.experiencewoodhorn.com/mothers-day-costume-talk/.
My talk has also been mentioned in the local newspaper ‘The Evening Chronicle ‘ please find link below
Book early as my talk proved so popular last time staff at the Woodhorn had to turn people away!
