Victorian Hair Art Workshop

April 15 @ 1:30 PM 3:30 PM


Join us at the Rectory to learn about the history of hairwork and Victorian commemorative practices, and make your own five-petal hairworked flower.

Sandra Klowak is a Winnipeg (Treaty 1) artist who weaves and sculpts with human hair based on the historic craft of Victorian hairwork. Sandra will take students through the full process of creating a simple hairwork piece, from preparing the hair and wire, weaving it via the historic “gimping” technique, and putting it together with bead and button.

Registration deadline April 13th
