CAULS, TEMPLERS and TIRES : The weird substructures of Late Medieval Headwear. A course by Sarah Thursfield.
This practical workshop will focus on the development of the lattice-patterned caps and shapes worn by fashionable women between 1390 and 1470. What can we learn from the historical sources, and what happens when we try to re-create them?
This course will be of interest to those who attended Sarah’s previous course on ‘Medieval Englishwomen’s Headwear’ but whilst some previous knowledge and sewing experience will be useful, beginners are also welcome — just be prepared to put some very strange things on your head!
Cost: £60 for the weekend (Friends of Dronfield Hall Barn £54)
Please bring along your sewing kit, any materials which you would like to make up and any headwear you have made previously. Basics such as paper, buckram and wire will be available on the day (*for a small charge).
