The Tudor Tailor team is pleased to announce an exciting new collaborative project with the Weiss Gallery to celebrate the launch of The Tudor Child, a sumptuously illustrated book offering a detailed insight into sixteenth century clothing for infants, young children and youths.

The exhibition investigates how Tudor children’s clothing demonstrated their place in society and signaled their growing maturity. It also explores the use of portraiture as source material for the reconstruction of historic dress. A selection of the reconstructed children’s costumes made for the book will be displayed alongside the portraits which inspired them. Visitors are invited to meet the Tudor Tailor team and take part in two weeks of tours, talks and interactive events.

What The Tudor Tailor did next

The Tudor Tailor doesn’t know which way to turn. Jane and Ninya need readers’ and customers’ help to decide which project to publish in the coming year. There has been a great deal of ongoing research since The Tudor Child was born in March 2013 and all of it is producing exciting, ground-breaking information. Most of it is coming together around two main themes and this puts The Tudor Tailor in a quandary.
