Description


Vote with your feet – Investigating the Women’s 20th century Shoe Collection

Venue: York Castle Museum, Kirk room

Tuesday 22nd January 2019, 2-3pm

Learn about the fascinating world of historic shoes with York Castle Museum’s Helen Thornton. Helen will guide you through the development of 20th century Western women’s shoe styles, and what shoes can tell us about the changing roles of women, especially in times of social and political upheaval. Get up close with some examples from the shoe collection, and discover more about the person who wore them.

This session will last one hour and include a talk about shoes as well as an opportunity to view and handle objects at the end.

Museum admission applies. Tickets £5 book through Eventbrite.
