DESCRIPTION

Discover the lost art of Victorian hair work with Freyia and make your very own beautifully macabre brooch using original techniques.

Once upon a time the craft of creating exquisite three dimensional works of art from real human hair was a common practise, used to honour loved ones both living and deceased.

Now, you can learn the basic techniques required to form delicate and melancholic flowers, and how to mount them to form a wearable adornment.

Discover the basic technique Victorian women used to create 3D hair pieces. Learn how to create simple modules from hair and wire which can be manipulated into floral arrangements.
