Three mannequins with clothes from various times in history; a red dress and hat with a gold tie around the waist, a red dress and hat with reed ribbons, and a white and blue long-sleeved dress.

In this workshop, students will learn about clothing from eight different periods (between 1200 and 1920), and these societies. These resources, and objects in the permanent collection, will be used as historical evidence to better understand the evolution of fashion over time, and how these shifts in style relate to changes in society.
