Caps and Hair
for the
18th Century Woman


Are you a costumer, reenactor, docent, or simply curious about the Colonial Era?

Would you like to try a new style style of cap, never had a cap before, or, are you questing the appropriateness of your current cap?

Perhaps you would like to know how to style your hair in the 18th century manner.

We have the class for you!

The Fort at No. 4
is pleased to offer
a one day class on
Making Caps and
Creating an 18th Century Hairstyle.

In the 18th century women of all social classes wore caps. These were worn for many reasons such as decorum, cleanliness, and of course style. 

Caps, and your hair styles make a statement! They are the most visible accessory of your 18th century ensemble. 

Many of us never learn how to dress our hair or find a cap that truly suits our countenance, social class, outfit, or our fancy.  One cap does not suit all ladies nor does it suit every ensemble.

After much research, Angela has created several caps which you will will have the opportunity to try on.  Discover which cap(s) works best for you with your usual hairstyle.  Then you will begin the construction process for your chosen cap.

Then Jennifer will teach you how to create an 18th century hairstyle for everyday and “high hair” for special occasions. You will then get to try on the caps again to see what works with your new style.

At the end of the day you will be well on your way to a completed cap having learned the steps of construction. You will also take with you your choice for another (a second) cap pattern along with a copy of our research and comprehensive directions to complete construction of your caps.

 
The Cost of this One Day workshop is $45.00.

100% of the proceeds from this class go to the benefit of the Fort at No.4
