Hertfordshire Life Interview

I was featured the April issue of Hertfordshire Life Magazine, about my work as a costume designer/maker and the Much Hadham Forge Museum costume project. The interview is now available online! Head over to www.hertfordshirelife.co.uk/people/...

I really enjoyed working on the Tudor Lord and Lady costumes, and they are now on display at Knebworth House as part of their Tudor exhibition. All my past posts about these costumes are tagged 'Much Hadham Forge Museum'.

Tudor Costumes at Knebworth House

The Tudor costumes I recently made for the Much Hadham Forge Museum have started their very own Tudor progress, with the first stop being Knebworth House in Hertfordshire! The characterful Gothic mansion started life as a Tudor stately home - both it's interior and exterior are beautiful and unusual, surrounded by gardens and open space.

A few weeks ago, I went along to Knebworth with the team from the Forge Museum to set up the costumes and take some quick press photos and short snippet videos talking about the costumes. The Tudor Lord and Lady costumes look fantastic within the Tudor setting! They form part of a costume exhibition throughout the house, which is open from March to September.

I was also interviewed by Sandra Deeble for Hertfordshire Life magazine. The four-page spread about the Much Hadham costume project and my work as an aspiring costume designer is in the April issue!
