Crow’s Eye Productions have just completed a short film for the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, showing the layers of 18th century dress.
The film is based on unpublished letters and memoirs. It is the story of two brothers, Robert and William Crowder and their sister Grace. . We have also made a follow-up drama-documentary on the story of William Crowder. Both films are now available on DVD
Pauline Loven designed, sourced original items and made the costume – except for the knitting! A community of knitters, spread from Orkney to Omaha, ‘Centenary Stitches’, created wonderful original knitted and crocheted garments for the film. An exhibition of the costumes made for the film, Centenary Stitches, is on display in The national Archives, London, until March 19th 2016.
