In support of exhibition Woven Strands: The Art of Human Hair Work, the Mütter Museum along with Morbid Anatomy will host Karen Bachmann for a workshop on Victorian Hair Art. Participants will learn to create wire-work and palette worked hair items that would be used in shadowbox creation. We will be working with copper wire and horsehair to form intricate twists and braiding that can be manipulated in various ways to form flowers, leaves, berries, and other shapes. Participants will be able to make an item suitable for mounting in a frame, or wearing as a brooch or hairclip. All materials will be provided by instructor.

Professor Karen Bachmann teaches at both Pratt Institute and Fashion Institute of Design. She specializes in jewelry, holloware, and decorative art. She has particular interests in medieval memento mori and 19th century sentimental work. She is a practicing studio jeweler and a former master jeweler at Tiffany & Co. She has had work published in Art Jewelry Today, and the Lark 500 series books. Written published work includes “Hairy Secrets: Human Relic as Memory Object in Victorian Hairwork Jewelry”. Her most recent publication is an essay on hairwork in the book “Death: a Graveside Companion”, Thames & Hudson.

Tickets are extremely limited. Cost of museum admission is included in workshop fee (students will have free time 12:30pm-1:30pm and 3:30pm-5:00pm to view the Mütter Museum). Light breakfast will be provided.
