Experience the colorful, spiritual, and global practice of headwrapping, an art enjoyed by peoples of all backgrounds, ethnicities and continent.  Through headwraps, Beautifully Wrapped workshops and talks work to increase cultural literacy and understanding amongst peoples of the world.  Our use of indigenous textiles helps empower global women’s collectives and aims to inspire people to connect to the other parts of the world.

Beautifully Wrapped’s global focus encourages us to think about differences and similarities in a world that is constantly in transition even as it is united by certain shared human traits and experiences, headwrapping being one of them.

  • Slideshow of photographs
  • Background history on the usage of headwraps around the world
  • Textile Recommendations
  • Demonstrations of several styles and techniques
  • One-on-One assistance for participants
  • Fun closing
  • Unique selection of headwraps avaialble for purchase

*Suggested time is 2 hours.
*Ask about us bringing in our portrait exhibition.

Zarinah El-Amin Naeem HeadshotLead Presenter:  Zarinah El-Amin Naeem, anthropologist and headwrapologist who has led hundreds of demonstrations on headwrapping and traveled extensively in West Africa.

Headwraps have the unique ability to transform the spirit.  I’ve seen women come in down and out and with just a little bit of fabric, begin to see themselves and their place in this world differently.  It’s amazing! – Zarinah El-Amin Naeem
