Exhibiting Artist Workshop: Heart of the Head Wrap with Chesley Antoinette

Thursday, August 5

Member Cost: $25

Non-Member Cost: $30

All ages welcome


Learn to sculpt headwraps with exhibiting artist Chesley Antoinette. Each workshop participant receives a scarf to sculpt and embellish, inspired by the collection of headwraps on view in Tignon. As participants incorporate their personal style, they will learn the history of the 1786 Tignon Law and uncover how the headwrap became a symbol of rebellion in Louisiana—subverting intentional oppression by enhancing beauty, intelligence, and adaptability.
