Penny Minter, UE, Secretary, Sir Guy Carleton Branch, UELAC
On Saturday, March 10th, 2018, Anne Redish will give a presentation and lead a discussion about Loyalist Period Clothing from 1:30 – 4:30 pm at the City of Ottawa Archives, 100 Tallwood Ave., Room 118, Ottawa, Ontario.
Become immersed in the fiction, facts and feel of clothing of the time of the Loyalists (late 1700s – early 1800s). Using clothing as a gateway, we can learn about the day-to-day details of their lives. Clothing can tell us about the people, their heritage, their work, and give us information about their crops and industry.
Bring or wear your Loyalist attire to contribute to the discussion! If it no longer fits or if you do not intend to use it again, that’s OK. Anne will discuss how it might be improved or altered, starting with how she wishes to improve her own. And bring your camera to take close-up images of the items and resources you will see!
NOTE: Please contact Sir Guy Carleton Branch by March 1, 2018 if you wish to attend. CarletonUEL@hotmail.com
