Museumology 4: Feeling Dressed

19th May 2023 @ 14:00 - 15:30

antique clothing

Museumology is a series of workshops within Frome Local History Festival (12th-20th May) that explores different aspects of the collections of Frome Museum which are not usually on display.

In this workshop, join Dr Lucy Gundry for a round table conversation to look through ‘our eyes only’ at pieces of dress from the archives.

We will find words to imagine what it would have felt like to touch and wear these items dressed as a man or woman in the everyday life of those who would have worked in the cloth trade of Frome.

Adults 16+
