Hair Art Masterclass

Marlee Coles |

Gather neighbors for a fun, three-hour event with hair artist Marlee Coles. Explore hair as a creative medium and celebrate the rich hair history of our community. Using hair extensions, braiding hair, and weave bundles in various textures and colors, participants will collaboratively create works of art. Whether experienced in braiding and styling or not, everyone is welcome to join in the fun and express their individual creativity! Wall hangings and freeform sculptures will be made using the hair materials along with other craft supplies. No special skills are required–just imagination! Together we’ll celebrate the diverse beauty within our community through this inclusive art experience.

Participants: Eight to 20
Ages: Adults and youth ages 13 and up.
Value: $1,000.00
Requirements: Please provide an inside venue with plenty of work space and electricity for glue guns.
