Fashion in a day: A workshop for young people

Love fashion?

We’ve teamed up with Creative Youth Network to offer two free one-day fashion workshops for 13-19 year olds over the summer.

Whether you’re a designer, doodler or just interested in textiles, this workshop will give you an insight into the history of fashion and the skills needed for garment making.

We’ll take you through our own collection, tracing fashions through time and learning about the social changes which shaped them.

Our costume collection consists of around 10,000 items dating from the 1730s to the present day. You’ll see beautiful dresses from the 1800s, accessories including fans, hats and corsages, plus all kinds of unusual shoes such as dancing slippers, silk boots, and 1970s platforms.

Each workshop is run by experienced youth arts facilitators, with all materials provided. Places are limited so book early!

Once you have registered, you will receive an email from us asking for a few additional details. Please make sure you complete this and return to us before the session.

If this course is fully booked, please email [email protected] to be added to the waiting list.

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
