Woven Strands is a three-month workshop series that will teach participants to braid natural hair as a means of promoting knowledge of natural hair, empowering girls and women to investigate their identity and curating intentional community. Raven and Sonja believe that hair holds cultural, social, biological, and therefore artistic significance. From July through September, they will facilitate braiding and hair maintenance workshops, while teaching how hair functions as an act of economic liberation. Raven, Sonja and the participants of Woven Strands will create hair art, textiles like mud cloth, self-portraiture and other mediums of expression and affirmation. The series will culminate in exhibition that showcases the power, strength and beauty in black women and girls through the natural hair movement.
