So, to get us all prepared for the colder temperatures to come, here are some autumnal-inspired objects to remind us what it's all about!
Plastic leaf-shaped mats from the 1950s
|Rather early for Christmas, but an autumnal-looking Christmas decoration, made from polystyrene, c 1970s|
Or how about dressing and accessorising with leaves and autumnal colours?
|A tortoiseshell hair comb, 1820|
|Padded silk waistcoat with trailing vine and leaf pattern picked out in felt, c 1800|
Come and see some of our autumnal fashion in our Style Picks exhibition at Wakefield Museum, and be inspired!
If that isn't enough, we are even hosting a family workshop inspired by the autumnal fashion in the exhibition!
Leaves are Falling

The seasons are changing and we will need to start wrapping up warm. Inviting our younger visitors to join us in this autumn-inspired session. Taking inspiration from a 1960s coat on display in the museum, we will use leaves to create some autumn crafts.
