On the first day of this two-day workshop, learn how to build these classically-inspired caps first worn the by British Army in Canada in 1777. Saratoga National Battlefield Historian & Author, Eric Schnitzer, will present his research on these caps which became an icon of General Burgoyne’s campaign against Ticonderoga and Saratoga. During the second day, participants will build their own warm, wool foraging cap, commonly worn by British soldiers on-fatigue or off -duty.
The workshop includes lunch each day, a cut-out kit for your caps, and sewing materials.
