A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO THE HISTORY OF HAIRWORK:

Join Gina as she goes into the archives at the Gibbes Museum of Art, with curator Sara Arnold, to discusses their collection of 18th & 19th century miniature portraits and the hairwork styles that were incorporated. 

Plus a brief look at the tools used for table-braiding long chains of hair and palette-working hair into flat weaves.
