Explore RAMM’s collection of 1820s’ fashion in this half day course.

Original dress from George IV’s reign will be introduced at this workshop. We will take a look at clothing for men, women and children, and discover a little about the tradespeople who made it, through objects and fashion magazines of the period.

Participants will be able to see examples from the collection up close. By the end of the session they should be able to identify basic fabrics and techniques, and have an idea of how to date clothing of the period.
