Speaker(s): Cordula van Wyhe and Susan Vincent

As part of the Festival of Ideas, join Cordula van Wyhe and Susan Vincent for this hands-on workshop to take a look at the beautiful and sometimes mystifying objects that were once fashionable. Using the handling collection of the Digital Museum of Dress Accessories (DMDA), you will ask what these items did, how they were used and why they were worn, and you will discover how they connect with much broader ideas.
