Discover the world of historical costuming with Loree Tannett as she shares her process for creating clothing items that bring the past alive. Goulbourn Museum invites you to join us for this exciting second installment of our 2021 Speaker Series on Wednesday, May 19 at 7:00 pm.
You’ve probably seen people dressed up in period garb at living history museums or historical re-enactments – but what goes into making these costumes? Loree Tannett will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the steps required for creating historical costumes, including the extensive research required, sewing individual clothing items, and putting together an outfit.
Loree Tannett is a Perth-based seamstress and costume designer. She enjoys merging the look of historical costuming with the comfort of modern clothing. She thinks that using costumes makes the museum experience more real and gives visitors a look into the lives of the people of the area highlighted in the museum.
