Aren't You Hot in Those Clothes?

Teens, Adults, Seniors Closed 5/31/2020 7/23/2020 6:00:00 PM

Have you ever seen women and men at reenactments and historic sites dressed up in clothing of another time period and wondered just how they were tolerating the heat of a summer day in that getup! This lighthearted presentation will explain the whys and wherefores of clothing worn during the 1700s.  Elizabeth Bertheaud and Michael Showalter from the Ephrata Cloister will discuss the various articles of clothing, what the clothing was made from and how people “beat the heat” 18th century style. Registration is required. A link for this virtual program will be emailed to you after you register. Ages 13+.
