Creative Hair Portrait Workshop

Come and join artist Habiba Nabisubi in making a unique hair portrait, with help from mother nature!

Make a self-portrait of your hair (or the hair of someone you love) using nothing but natural materials, like moss, leaves and twigs found in the Horniman Gardens… and maybe a little eco-friendly glitter (biodegradable).

Hair: Untold Stories illustrator Habiba Nabisubi will be facilitating an hour of experimentation, play and fun in this hair workshop. Bring your imagination and be prepared to get a little messy!
