Explore what it means to create historical clothing - both in the creation of reproduction period clothing for museum exhibits and staff, and the less-than-perfect costumes quickly assembled for museum film. Participants in this singular program will begin at Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site, where seamstresses from Peebles Island Resource Center discuss the painstaking research and construction methods behind reproduction period clothing made especially for site staff. The second part if the program moves across the river to Crailo State Historic Site, where staff member and seamstress Erica Nuckles examines the whirlwind environment behind creating less than accurate costumes for Crailo's award winning film, "Keeping Order: A Fort Orange Court Record." Reservations required: Space is limited, so call Schuyler Mansion at (518) 434. 0834 by April 25th to reserve your place.
