As part of the Makerhood Uncovered event this year in, I’ll be doing my first workshops ever. I’ll be teaching how to make your own hair products by sharing the process of making conditioner and hair perfume.
The event, which is on September 13th, is kicking off the Brixton Design Week as part of the London Design Festival. The idea behind Makerhood Uncovered is to show people what goes in to making handmade and artisan wares. The theme is collaboration, so for my workshops, the participants will be customising or personalising the finished products to their tastes to take home.
They’ll get to choose ingredients and additives to suit their hair type. And then have an essential oil sniffing session so they can choose their own fragrance. I’m really excited and intrigued to see the end results!
There are plenty of other very interesting workshops happening on the day, including up-cycling, illustration, printing etc. Even if you don’t pre-book a ticket, it’s worth coming down to check out not only the makers, but the venue itself. It’s at Six Brixton, which is a community led development and a very unique place.
