West Coast costumers take note — a spot has opened up in Burnley & Trowbridge’s Brunswick workshop, May 28-30 in Vallejo. I’m going to be taking this workshop, and I highly recommend that anyone interested in 18th costume grab this spot! It will be taught by Janea Whitacre, who is Milliner and Mantua-Maker at Colonial Williamsburg. She taught the sacque draping workshop that I took a few years back, and I was incredibly impressed by how much detailed knowledge she has about 18th century dressmaking. Even if you’re not thrilled with the Brunswick style itself, this is an amazing opportunity to learn 18th century dressmaking techniques, which could be applied to any number of garments.
