Our short series of free Wednesday evening talks continues at 7pm on April 24th with ‘Rural Working-Class Clothing and Change in Victorian England’ by Professor Rachel Worth who is Professor Emerita of the history of dress and fashion at the Arts University, Bournemouth.

In this illustrated talk, Rachel will describe how the rural poor dressed in the nineteenth century with particular reference to Dorset. She will discuss the historical sources that help us create a clearer picture of a neglected topic: for example, rare surviving items of dress, photographs, works of art and fictional literature, in the context of her knowledge of the economies of fabrics and clothes.

All welcome, and please register your intention to attend.
