WOMEN’S CAP WORKSHOP
Make your cap the star of your period wardrobe while perfecting your hand sewing skills at Pottsgrove Manor’s Women’s Cap Workshop.
Caps were worn by women of all social classes during the 18th century. However, cap styles varied greatly and often changed to reflect the fashions of the time. Caps with lace, gathers, and lappets were extremely popular and were often accessorized with silk ribbons and bows. Workshop participants will create their own cap by using only hand-sewing skills to construct their new headgear. Historic interpreter Deborah Peterson will lead this workshop where participants will also hear a brief lecture on the fashion of caps. Participants will be able to try on several styles of caps before choosing the style that best suits them. If participants do not finish their cap at the end of the workshop, they will have the instructions, materials, and know-how to complete the final steps at home. Start off your New Year with a perfectly hand-sewn cap made at Pottsgrove Manor.
Space is limited. Materials fee is $45 per person. Ages 10+ and, as caps can be tricky, some sewing experience is recommended but all levels are welcome to register for this workshop. Registration information can be found on Pottsgrove Manor’s website, www.montcopa.org/pottsgrovemanor, and registration forms with payment (cash, check, or money order accepted) must be sent by January 12th. Participants are asked to bring a bagged lunch.
