Exploring clothing and accessories including day and evening attire, nightgowns, undergarments, hats and shoes, fans, and jewelry dating from 1850 to 1900, this workshop will feature a gallery tour with the exhibit curator, a talk by an expert in fashion design, and opportunities for participating in activities, discussion and reflection to help integrate this exhibit into classroom practice.
