Edwardian Chic: Downton Abbey Gear- registration opens

Arts and Crafts
2:45 pm - 3:45 pm

There hasn’t been a British television show like Downton Abbey since the 1970s series Upstairs, Downstairs. Both are similar in their depiction of the chasm between the ruling class and the servant class. And both inspired contemporary fashion trends. Our Downton workshop focuses on a stunning cloche hat with a low brim that distinctively frames the face. Along with this accessory, students will create a neck shawl that can be worn as an adornment or as a soft, warm scarf in cooler weather. Both are timeless pieces for autumn dressing. No beginning students please.
