Workshop Summary

The HERA funded ‘Fashioning the Early Modern: Creativity and Innovation in Early Modern Europe, 1500-1800’ project held its first workshop on 11-12 November at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

The one and a half-day session looked at the various methodologies available for the study of early modern fashion and innovation, including a handling session focussing on early modern materials such as knitting (to be led by Susan North). Early Career participants were able to join in the workshop, present their work and receive feedback from the other attendees. The workshop offered an opportunity for access to the V&A’s collection, networking and for in-depth discussion about approaches to early modern fashion.
