Workshop: Vintage Saree Hair Accessories
October 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In this workshop we will make a few kinds of hair accessories out of vintage sarees. We will be making a rolled silk sari rosette headband and a brocade border bow. The timeless charm of traditional Indian textile featuring embroideries, weaving and luxurious silk is enchanting. These saris have seen countess happy times and innumerable celebration. Too fragile to wear, we will give them another life by repurposing them into hair accessories that can be worn on many occasions.
About the Instructor:
I am Preeti Agrawal, a craft blogger and watercolorist. In my work, I am concerned with experiments that combine old and new. I am drawn to the modern craft sensibility but at the same time the traditional arts call to me. I love the interplay of the two as I adjust traditional arts to new mediums and materials.
A concern for the environment and a reverence for nature pervades my daily life and my work: I save fabric, remnants, beads and the castaways of modern living and incorporate them in my work. Making things by hand gives me joy, up cycling, salvaging and repurposing materials gives me joy, as a result my crafting world is the perfect marriage of two!
