Thrifty Fashion and Film
May 6, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:15 pmFree
Join The Dukes costume makers for a hands-on afternoon of sewing, archive film and cake.
To celebrate the release of Ration Books and Rabbit Pies, a collection of Second World War ‘films from the home front’, we invite you to bring along any items of old clothing and we’ll help you up-cycle them into something lovely and new.
We’ll stitch and natter and eat cake whilst watching extracts from the film, including information films and adverts from the archives, with handy tips to the nation on rationing, salvaging and making do.
