Kindra Jones will bring this changing timeline of fashion to life before your very eyes as she pads, flattens and squeezes her silhouette to match each era. Using her personal collection of museum quality historical reproduction clothing, she will show how religion, politics and necessity have shaped garments over time. Having worn historical costume herself for almost 15 years, Kindra will not only show you what the clothing looks like, but tell you what it is like to wear it too; from hilarious mishaps to eye-opening revelations.
Professional historian, author, and presenter Kindra Jones has a love and enthusiasm for history that goes beyond the pages of books. Drawing on her own experiences, her talks will entertain all as she brings the past to life using her extensive collection of historical props and costume.
A natural born adventurer, Kindra has sailed a medieval ship, lived in a round house, helped populate a medieval village, stroked tigers, climbed a volcano, travelled to visit the legendary Japanese mountain monks, the Yamabushi, and cast her own sword. As well as graduating from university with a first class honours, Kindra's experience includes fifteen years of working in heritage venues around the UK and abroad, not only talking about history, but living it!
