Clothing of the Tang Dynasty – Class Tomorrow!

Tomorrow at Winter Collegium in Meridies’s fair An Dun Theine, I’ll be teaching my first garb class.

Because no, hobby horses, while they are worn, don’t really count as garb.

I’m excited. And nervous. And excited. But if the sudden swell of people on Facebook garb-related groups who are interested in Tang Dynasty stuff is any indication, I’m hoping for┬áthe best.

Handout and presentation are done – now is the time of relaxing and trying to think about other things so I can sleep tonight.

New Things

I’ve added a few new things on the site in the last few days.

Thing the First: The Tang Dynasty page in the Epic Timey-Wimey Garb Project has been updated with my research.

Thing the Second: I’ve also added Construction notes for Tang Dynasty garments. Right now this is very female-centric.

Thing the Third: I started configuring an archive of scribal stuff (awards, etc.), and I finally launched it today. It’s by no means complete – there are some descriptions missing, and I haven’t loaded in all the images yet. But it didn’t make sense to keep sitting on it. It’s the Scribal Archive link in the main navigation menu. This is basically an image gallery with descriptions of items I’ve made while doing this crazy scribal thing. As I continue to add to it to keep it updated, I hope to add more specific information about materials, etc.
