On the last outing with the Victorian at Heart group, I had a nice chat with Lottie in the car and she mentioned a hair work lecture at Dalnavert Museum. It sounded cool so I decided to sign up for it. I wasn’t sure if she had signed up or was just thinking about it so I wasn’t sure if I’d see her there. She was there!
We were working on some of the techniques used in Victorian hair wreaths. Lottie chose blond hair and I chose black. (For the workshop, we were using fake hair but both Lottie and I want to try it with our own hair.)
I think they turned out rather well for first attempts!
The class was put on by Sandra Klowak.
Sandra is an amazing artist who has put a modern slant on an old technique.
During the question and answer portion, it came up that now a days, people seem to want to have little things made from their pet’s hair. Ginger, my dog, is probably wondering why I keep looking at her tail!
