Fashioning the Georgians: Women’s Dress in the Eighteenth Century

Date: 18th November 2021
Time: 19:00 - 20:30

Join dress historian Dr Serena Dyer, author of Material Lives: Women Makers and Consumer Culture in the 18th Century, for an evening exploring the fashionable dress of the eighteenth century. Drawing from Material Lives, this lavishly illustrated talk will introduce four fashionable women from Georgian England, all of whom recorded their passion for clothes in meticulous detail. There will also be an opportunity to view recreations of eighteenth-century gowns, all meticulously hand stitched following period methods.


Doors open 7pm. The lecture will last approximately 60 minutes, with an opportunity to then view and handle some of Dr Dyer's makes. Given the historic nature of the building, these events are not wheelchair accessible and not suitable for guests with accessibility needs. Please do not bring your own food and drink. A small bar will be open on the night selling a range of drinks and light snacks. Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable
