If you are a member of the DFWCG mailing list, then you've already seen this, but I don't want to miss anybody, so I'm going to repeat it here. We have two new very cool workshops coming up later this summer, and everybody is invited, whether you are a member of the guild or not.
Hal is the Chief Curator for Dallas Heritage Village, and he will be showing us antique garments from the museum's collection. This is a fabulous chance to learn more about Victorian clothing from a real expert, and some of the dresses he has to show us are absolutely gorgeous! This lecture is just $1 for guild members and $3 for non-members, and you can click on the banner for more details.
Our hatmaking workshop will be taught by a professional costumer, and although the example shows us an Edwardian style, the basic skills that we will learn could be adapted to almost any era. This one costs $10 for members and $15 for non-members, but that includes the materials for hat construction (buckram, millinery wire, etc.). You can bring your own odds and ends for decoration, or just build the hat base and finish it however you want on your own time. Since we are having to buy supplies and find a room big enough to accommodate everybody, we are requesting that you either RSVP here or on the guild mailing list so we can get a good headcount.
Hope to see you there!
