Description
This is a look at the extant knitted trunkhose in the Museum of Dresden. These are a bit of an oddity in period knitting. The class will be a discussion of the history of the trunkhose as well as an exploration of recreating them. The class will receive the original document published by the Dresden Museum that discusses the item as well as the English translation from the original German.
