Subject: [CostumeHistoryClass] Why I'm here! :)
I live in Australia and work at our national museum. I've always loved period drama TV serials and film, and grew up reading Jane Austen books, which is what sparked my interest in costume from different eras.
More broadly, I love history, jazz music, film, travel, being inspired by great museums and exhibition collections. I'm a professional writer by training and am back to the study books, seeking new ideas from the arts, performance theatre and culture when designing quilts and other projects to chip away at in between my various work and life commitments.
Looking forward to making a good start on the history of costume, while plugging away with my other uni subjects in archaeology and history...Who knows, this class may change my destiny.
