Make your own floral headdress with Penny Elliott
With Frida Kahlo the flower crown became an evocative symbol of the naturalism of her native Mexico. She created the most enduring legacy of the floral crown headdress in the fashion world. She was one of the first women to use fashion to broadcast “a feminist message of independence, work and equality”. More recently Beyonce & Rhianna have [somewhat over-the-top] floral crowns on the covers of Vogue.
Our crowns will be a little more restrained. After a Power Point presentation about Frida Kahlo, with emphasis on her indigenous clothes & headpieces you will make a variety of wet felted flowers in the colours of your choice. Once dry they will be mounted on a head band. Ready for Vogue!!!
PARTICIPANTS TO BRING: old towel, needle & cotton, glue gun [optional] , small sharp scissors, plastic milk/soda bottle with small holes punched in lid. ALL OTHER MATERIALS PROVIDED.
