Hands on History: Curious Clothes

Where did people get their clothes from hundreds of years ago? This month, we're looking at the history of fabrics and clothing and how people made their own clothes from natural materials like cotton, silk, and wool. We'll try on some old-fashioned outfits, explore how different fabrics help keep us warm or cool, and felt our own artistic creations!
