Woven: Swedish-style Table-made Hairwork

Oct 6, 2019, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

Karen Keenan’s hairwork exhibit will be on display during this event, which also features a presentation at 2 p.m.

In 2018, Keenan traveled to Våmhus, Sweden to learn about hairwork, a 200-year tradition of using human hair for ornamentation. Her presentation will focus on the experience of learning techniques used to weave intricate jewelry using human hair. Bracelets, earrings and more, including artifacts from the St. Louis County Historical Society’s collection and from community members, will be on display. She will also be teaching a series of four class sessions in October for those wanting to find out more.
