I just found this on A Fashionable Frolick. If you’re near New York you can sign up for a week long 18th century shoemaking workshop, August 20-27. Head over to A Fashionable Frolick to read more!

I would absolutely love to do this, learning to make my own shoes is probably highest on my 18th century wishlist, but unfortunately it’s not possible for me to get to New York that soon.


18th century festival in Denmark

September 3-26 there will be a big 18th century festival in Copenhagen called 1700s - globalization, gossip and greed.

There will be countless lectures, shows, tours, exhibitions and concerts, and the festival opens with a big masquerade ball. I would love to go to some of the lectures because they sound really interesting, but unfortunately I just don’t understand spoken Danish.
