Presentations and workshops are an important part of what I do because I enjoy sharing my knowledge and love of historical clothing with others. My presentations are centered around the display of original and reproduction clothing as well as images of original garments, period photographs, and fashion plates.
Past presentations have included a variety of subjects for a wide range of audiences including living historians and reenacting organizations, museum staff and docents, school groups, residents of retirement homes, and the general public.
Presentations can be tailored to the audience, interest level, or specific interpretive needs. I’m always open to researching and preparing new presentations. Previous presentation topics include:
Women's Clothing of the Victorian Era
Winter Past Times of the 1860's
Women’s Dress in Early Pennsylvania
Orientalism in the Victorian Era
Tableaux Vivant: Living Pictures in the Civil War Era
Wheatland: The Home of First Lady Harriet Lane
Presentations are available for groups of all sizes. Prices vary based on size of group and travel distance to your location. Please contact for a price quote.
