The art of hand-knotting has been used for a variety of material culture over the centuries. Join our Wigmakers to learn this technique that they use to create the caul (base) of the wig, as well as learn some of its other applications. Participants will leave with a kit they can use to put their newfound skills to work.
Participants must be at least 16 years old. Limited to 10 participants.
