The Tudor Child: Clothing and Culture 1485 to 1625
8 March 2013 - 21 March 2013
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.
