Shaping the Body : fashion through the ages – Fri 27 Mar 2020

Join Assistant Curator of Costume and Textiles Dr Faye Prior for a guided tour of the Fashion Gallery of Shaping the Body. Discover how the gallery was put together, and learn some of the histories behind the objects, from the oldest item of clothing in York Castle Museum’s collection to the newest, plus a dress worn by Queen Victoria, and a very rare women’s waistcoat that’s nearly three hundred years old.

The tour will conclude with an object handling session, where you can view and handle a small selection of very special objects from York Castle Museum’s costume and textiles collection.

Tickets are £8.50 and museum admission still applies.
