Did you ever wonder how people in the past got dressed every day? How did they live without zippers or Velcro? Where did they buy their shoes? How did they keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter?
Learn the fundamentals of 18th-century dress and what it reveals about the Revolution in our hands-on workshops. Spend the day learning traditional skills and working with your hands, beginning with a close look at objects in the Museum’s Galleries as inspiration for your own creations. Then, try your hand at creating your own replica to take home. Learn tricks of the 18th-century trades and meet others while discovering new talents in making and doing.
Artisan Workshops are taught by the Museum’s knowledgeable team of educators and makers, who have years of experience studying and recreating historical objects. We have workshops for everyone that are suitable for both seasoned makers and new artisans. Children and families are welcome. All materials are provided.
