World Rugby Museum’s Rugby Strips and Textiles Workshop
This workshop will describe the evolution of rugby apparel from the 1840s to the present. Themes will include: an introduction to a range of textiles and fabrics, the changing culture of the sport, and the lifestyle and leisure of Victorian schoolchildren.
In this museum led workshop students will learn how the craftwork, design and materials, used in the production of rugby playing apparatus, have continually changed to reflect the times. Students will also gain an insight into the history and evolution of Rugby football and how players have changed over time.
