‘Feeling Dressed’ workshop with Dr Lucy Gundry

‘Feeling Dressed’ workshop with Dr Lucy Gundry 150 150 Frome Heritage Museum

30 September 2023


Join Dr Lucy Gundry for a round table conversation to look through ‘our eyes only’ at pieces of dress from the archives of Frome Museum.

Dr Gundry is an Associate Lecturer in Mixed Media Textiles on BA Creative Arts Practice at Bath Spa University. She is interested in the relationship between body, dress and self as a fabricated skin, formed through the act of dressing and worn out in the everyday.

Workshop participants will visually unpick how pieces made by both men and women were made, worn, repaired and re-worn over time – what it felt like to wear these pieces and why loved clothes last.

The Feeling Dressed Workshop will take place at Frome Museum for a limited audience of 12 people.

The event is free, but donations to Frome Museum will be welcomed after the workshop. The suggested donation is £10, but please only pay what you can.
