Black Tudors: Elizabeth’s Story

Meet Elizabeth, Seamstress for Lady Willoughby at Wollaton Hall.  She will tell you about her families’ travels from Africa to Spain and hers to Nottingham, about her job and skills as a seamstress and show you some of the latest Tudor fashions.

Look at replica Tudor textiles and clothing and find out more about what Tudor’s would have worn from royalty to servants.

The group will then have the chance to try out plaiting, weaving on a frame and loom, cord making, and embroidery before using fabric to create their own draped clothing designs.

Duration: 1.5 hours | 10.30-12.00  or 1pm–2.30pm
