Program Description


Celebrate Women's History Month with Beautifully Wrapped.
Fold, place, whip around, tuck, pull and pin! Headwraps are a beautiful way to accessorize, protect your hair and show a bit of style.  Participants learn to tie their own headwraps as well as the unique history of wrapping across the globe.  Bring a piece of cloth or use one of ours and by the end of our time together, you will be able to create a piece of art!
Experience the colorful, spiritual and global practice of headwrapping, an art enjoyed by peoples of all backgrounds, ethnicities and continents.
Zarinah El-Amin Naeem, master wrapper, is an anthropologist and the founder of Beautifully Wrapped, an international interfaith corporation that uses the global art of headwrapping to build love and understanding. She is currently based in Detroit and has been sharing her study of headwrapping for over 15 years.  Find out more at:
