More than a Headwrap – The Anthropology & Global Style of Headwrapping
February 8 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Whip, Tuck, Pin! Headwrapping is an art and expression of choice for millions across the globe. From Africa to Bulgaria, from Michigan to Dubai, head wraps are worn by both men and women from a variety of cultures.
In this workshop, anthropologist Zarinah El-Amin Naeem shares the history and culture of headwrapping. You’ll also have the chance to learn styles and try on different scarves from around the world in our wrapping sessions with her team of headwrapologists. So grab a friend and come on down to the Carnegie Library for an afternoon of world culture!
