This workshop will investigate how rugby strips, boots and equipment have evolved since the 1840s.
Students will examine how rugby clothing has changed and improved due to innovations in technology; and changes within the sport, such as the advent of professionalism.
The workshop will culminate with a fun object-handling session in which students will get the opportunity to try on the different outfits.
