It feels so unreal typing this, but I can finally say that the Tudor costume for the Much Hadham Forge Museum has been finished and delivered!
I won't be showing it complete on here for a while, so if you want to see everything together, you'll have to head over to the Museum! There you'll be able to see my costume with the amazing wall paintings that inspired it, as well as visiting the beautiful village that is the birth place of the Tudor dynasty. Did you know that Edmund Tudor (also known as Edmund of Hadham), father of the first Tudor king, was born in Much Hadham? While you're in the village you could also visit the Henry Moore museum.
Soon, my costume will go on a tour of the Eastern region, stopping off at various Tudor buildings to spread the word about the wonderful yet little-known wall paintings at the Forge Museum - I'll keep you updated here!
In the meantime, here's a sneak peak at the finished costume!
